first_img December 04, 2018 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter New Manufacturing Apprenticeships in Northwestern Pennsylvaniacenter_img Economy,  Education,  PAsmart,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Building on his commitment to expand job training, Governor Tom Wolf today announced two new apprenticeships for tool and die makers and plastic process technicians in Northwestern Pennsylvania. In partnership with the private sector, the apprenticeships will prepare workers for new jobs in the plastics and petrochemical industries in the region.“Every Pennsylvanian deserves a chance to build a rewarding career and earn a good wage,” said Governor Wolf. “These apprenticeships give students and workers hands-on experience for growing careers while earning a paycheck. It also strengthens the pipeline of talented workers that businesses need.”Apprenticeships are part of Governor Wolf’s PAsmart initiative to invest in apprenticeships, job training and science and technology education.In Erie, a tool and die makers apprenticeship with Executool Precision Tooling was approved by the Department of Labor and Industry’s Apprenticeship and Training Office (ATO). The Erie Institute will provide the related technical instruction.“With our state-registered Apprenticeship Program, we are investing in our workers’ future,” said Alicia Mayes, Human Resources Manager for Executool Precision Tooling. “We welcome all interested applicants to come see us at Executool today to explore apprenticeship opportunities.”In Oil City, a plastic process technician apprenticeship with Keystone Community Education Council was recently registered with the department. Twelve regional plastics manufactures collaborated on the program. With nearly 200 plastic businesses in Northwest Pennsylvania there is a need for up to 400 new plastic process technicians.“The local plastics industry has been asking for a program like this for years,” said Lance Hummer, Executive Director of the Keystone Community Education Council. “This combination of hands-on experience and classroom learning is tailored to the exact needs of our region’s injection molders.”“Pennsylvania is becoming a major player in the petrochemical industry. Between Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia, we are now the second largest producer of natural gas in the world. Plastics is a major component of the petrochemical industry and there is an incredible opportunity for growth over the next decade,” added Hummer.The Wolf administration created the ATO in 2016. The office has registered 119 new sponsors and 166 new apprenticeship programs or occupations. Pennsylvania now has 16,286 registered apprentices statewide.“The ATO is creating more apprenticeship opportunities in Pennsylvania, and with new PAsmart investments providing an additional $7 million to develop and expand registered apprenticeship programs, we are working to double the number of registered apprentices in the state by 2025,” said L&I Secretary Jerry Oleksiak. “If you are looking for a job, are thinking about a career change, or are a business that can’t seem to find enough skilled workers, I urge you to consider apprenticeships.”For more information about pursuing an education and career in Pennsylvania at any stage of life, visit PAsmart.Visit ATO for more information about apprenticeship programs and the Apprenticeship and Training Office.last_img read more
