The American Injection Molding (AIM) Institute has teamed up with Clarion University and the Keystone Community Education Council (KCEC) to bridge the skills gap in northwestern Pennsylvania’s manufacturing workforce. The inaugural class of the Plastics Process Technician Apprenticeship Program will begin their two years of classroom and on-the-job training on November 12th.

KCEC will help eligible companies receive reimbursement for nearly two-third of the program costs through the Greater Oh-Penn Manufacturing Apprenticeship Network (Oh-Penn) and the Workforce & Economic Development Network of Pennsylvania (WEDnetPA). The cost of the program is $10,500 and companies may be able to receive reimbursements up to $8,100.

The media is invited to attend the program kickoff on Monday, November 12th at 8:00 am, where there will be opening remarks with representatives from AIM, Clarion and the KCEC. There will also be an opportunity to meet the apprentices at this time.
