Companies Sought to Host Student Apprenticeships


Local companies can become part of an innovative apprenticeship program in Southern Maryland that trains and prepares students to fill workforce shortages in STEM or manufacturing career fields.

Tech Jobs Rule is an initiative with the James A. Forrest Technology Center, the Strategic Education Office of NAWCAD, The Patuxent Partnership, and other TPP member companies.

Those interested can download the Initial Industry Interest Form here.

Students can apply for the program after completing one to two years of training at the Forrest Center in Leonardtown.

Talented high school students who are interested in skilled work in manufacturing and STEM fields are given paid apprenticeship opportunities with local industry and the government. These organizations assess the demand for skilled workers in specific areas.
