Each calendar year starting in early January we will start a new group of apprentices. If your company would like to enter one or more apprentices into the program, it is suggested to do it as early as possible before January; however if room exists it is possible for DMACC to accept applicants a few weeks before the start date.
This program will enhance the skills of current workers within a participating company in the precision machining trades. This leads to having national recognized credentials that are granted through a registered program with the
Department of Labor / Office of Apprenticeship (DOL/OA). The skills standards are based on the
National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS) skill standards. The NIMS organization has created these skill standards using an expert panel assembled from national leading companies.
After the completion of machinist registered apprenticeship you are considered a journeyperson. An option would be to complete 12 semester credit hours at DMACC and receive an
AGS degree. This degree is highly transferable to many institutions. Your registered apprenticeship completion would account for the 52 elective credits in this degree requirement.
