Digging Deep Into The Joint Apprenticeship Training Program

In this program Nic will walk you through the experience of the development of the Apprenticeship Professional Development Curriculum.  Nic will discuss the detailed insights and outcomes that were uncovered during the development of this curriculum.  During this process Nic interviewed a wide range of apprentices, journeymen, and foremen and dove deep into the wants and needs of todays construction worker.  Nic also interviewed a wide range of key supervisors and management to get their perspective along with the perspective of class instructors and the individual contractors.  When all the different pieces of this information came together it created for some exciting insights into the direction that todays apprentice needs to be taken.  From this information Nic developed a pilot semester program where he worked with 4 years of apprentices in a group setting and individually.  After reviewing the results of the apprenticeship program assessment and the results of the pilot semester Nic developed the current Apprenticeship Professional Development Curriculum.

This is a great program for Nic to share with the management and labor leadership.  You will leave with what you need to do and what you need to know to implement an Apprenticeship Professional Development Curriculum of your own.
