Achieving Journey-level Status

The InTech Center provides hands-on, accelerated education to enhance an apprentice’s on-the-job training. Through this experience, an apprentice will be able to achieve journey-level status in two – four years, becoming an expert in their trade.

For employers who are struggling to find skilled workers, competency-based apprenticeships provide a pipeline of well-trained, qualified candidates. Registered apprenticeships combine curriculum and on-the-job training that prepare trainees for today’s workplace.

Current InTech apprenticeship trainings are registered through the state and are applicable to manufacturing and distribution companies. Programs offered include Industrial Maintenance Electrician and Industrial Mechanic.

“By engaging in this program, employers can see a reduction in turnover rates, increase in productivity and attain a stable and reliable pipeline of qualified workers.”

Steve Tyrrell, Maintenance Manager of Mitsubishi Cement Corporation and Chairman of the Inland/Desert Non-Union Unilateral Multi-Employer Apprenticeship Committee.

How are apprenticeship candidates deemed qualified?

Candidates who complete a pre-apprenticeship pathway will get exposure to basic electrical and mechanical components related to either apprentice occupation, as well as math review, soft skills training and tools of the trade. Upon completion, they will need to pass a written skills test, hands-on assessment and apprenticeship committee interview. Employers who are interested in apprenticeship then have the opportunity to interview and select their top-ranked candidates.

Employee apprentices at California Steel Industries receive their journey-level certificate as Industrial Mechanics and Industrial Maintenance Electricians.
