The Mechanical Trades Institute also has training facilities in Rome, Macon and Albany, Georgia. Apprenticeship classes, of which there are now two a year, provide a five-year curriculum in the plumbing, pipe fitting or service trades. The total number of apprentices exceeds 300 a year. In mid-2000, a modern addition to the institute was dedicated with a large delegation of city, state and federal officials in attendance.
Apprenticeship is the combination of on-the-job training and related classroom instruction in which workers learn the practical and theoretical aspects of a highly professional skilled occupation.
Apprentices of today are the supervisors, superintendents, and contractors of tomorrow. Ambitious young persons needn't stop advancing once they become a professional skilled tradesman. Supervisory positions become available as they improve their skills, knowledge, and ability to direct and guide people in their trade. Advancement, of course, depends on the individual.
If you are interested in applying for a management or professional support staff position, please contact MCAG by phone, or by e-mail by clicking here.
