Through the support of the Manufacturing Association of New York (MACNY), CEG launched the Manufacturing Intermediary Apprenticeship Program in the Capital Region. Under this program, CEG is approved by the New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL) to act as a group sponsor for apprenticeship programs and acts as an intermediary between companies and the DOL. In this role, CEG administers employer-driven programs focused on building the talent pipeline and expanding registered apprenticeship in NYS.
Registered Apprenticeship programs train new employees in two ways. The first is On-The-Job-Training (OJT), which consists of a journey worker or other skilled employee sharing their experience with an apprentice. The apprentice is a full-time employee who does productive work under the supervision of their mentor. This mentor assists their apprentice with hands on training and providing meaningful feedback. The second aspect is Related Instruction (RI), which takes place offsite, typically in a classroom and teaches the theoretical and knowledge-based aspects of the trade.
