National Apprenticeship Week 2017: Michigan Events

Posted by Heather Smith on Nov 9, 2017 9:00:00 AM


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to participate in an apprenticeship program instead of attending a college or university? National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) is targeted towards people just like you — to help you discover what can be achieved with the #other4yeardegree. During last year’s NAW, more than 300 events took place in 47 States. NAW 2017 will be even bigger, with almost 400 events planned  — 32 of those will take place right here in Michigan. Here are a few we think you should check out.

2nd Annual Apprenticeship Expo
November 14, 2017
4:00pm - 7:00pm
Randolph Career and Technical Center, Detroit
17101 Hubbell, Detroit MI 48235

The goal of the Expo is to help people find a gateway into Apprenticeship programs. The event will feature hands-on exhibits in several skilled trades, allowing attendees to experience how people do their jobs as carpenters, electricians, bricklayers, masons, iron workers, roofers, and welders. Simulators for heavy equipment (truck) operators, virtual design computers and apprenticeship resources will also be part of the Expo.  View Invitation

The Partnership for Diversity and Opportunity in Transportation is the local clearinghouse for all 2016 Detroit area apprenticeship events.
