Harrison, MI November 7, 2016 – Mid Michigan Community College, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor, today announced that it will host an Apprenticeship Open House as part of the second annual National Apprenticeship Week.

During National Apprenticeship Week, MMCC will be opening its doors 10am-6pm on Tuesday, November 15 to companies or individuals who want to see student projects and tour the facilities. MMCC invites you to visit the Harrison Tech Center on the main campus to see the exciting things that are happening.

Apprenticeship is an “earn and learn” training model that combines work-based learning with related classroom instruction using the highest industry standards. Companies that offer apprenticeship programs can diversify their workforce, improve productivity and profitability, standardize training, reduce turnover, receive tax credits and more.

The apprenticeship system began in construction and other skilled trades. Today there are apprenticeships in more than 1,000 occupations, including careers in healthcare, IT, energy and more. The goal of National Apprenticeship Week and open house events like this one is to educate businesses and leaders about the importance of apprenticeship programs.
