Three local community colleges team up to develop mechatronics apprenticeship program

NEW ORLEANS — In an unprecedented partnership, 3 local community colleges & 3 local companies have joined forces to develop a mechatronics apprenticeship program to address the shortage of mechatronics workers in advanced manufacturing. The program combines classroom instruction with on-the-job training using an earn-while-you-learn model & all training costs are covered by the employer. We joined them for a special signing day event to celebrate this year's new apprentices as the program heads into it's 2nd year. To learn more, visit www.gnoinc.org/mechatronics
