Opportunities are available for young adults ages 18-25 looking for a career in the trades and manufacturing. The Macomb/St. Clair Michigan Works! Young Professionals have received a grant to fund 25 participants in the MAP+ pre-apprenticeship for the fall 2020 semester at Macomb Community College.
The apprenticeship is a series of four online classes that explore career pathways in fields that are in high demand. The classes are Shop Math, Drafting/Blueprint Reading, Industrial Safety, and Trade Related Prep. Those who complete the semester will get an Industrial-Readiness Certificate and earn nine credits at Macomb Community College.
Tuition, fees, and book costs will be covered by The Macomb/St. Clair Michigan Works! Young Professionals. They will also pay for a laptop if needed, as well as tutoring. There is a participation stipend available as well. A high school diploma or GED are NOT required for enrollment, and there are no set times for the classes, which are self-paced modules.
