Apprenticeship Program Offered by Monroe Dodge, MCCC

Three local organizations have teamed up to launch a first-of-its-kind apprenticeship program in Monroe County ahead of the ninth annual National Apprenticeship Week.

The inaugural apprenticeship program for automotive technology specialists is offered through the non-profit organization SEMCA Michigan Works in collaboration with Monroe Dodge Superstore and Monroe County Community College.

The two-year program will give trainees the opportunity to learn and develop skills through on-the-job training at the agency alongside traditional university coursework. Interns are compensated with competitive wages with no out-of-pocket expenses and can obtain national certification from the U.S. Department of Labor.

Upon completion of the Relevant Training Instruction (RTI) curriculum, trainees can also apply approved coursework toward a certificate or degree from MCCC.

In a press release, SEMCA Michigan Works said the program addresses the shortage of skilled technicians in the automotive industry and provides a unique opportunity for individuals to gain practical experience and academic knowledge.
