(Walker County, Georgia) – Georgia Northwestern Technical College and the Roper Corporation, a division of General Electric, officially entered into an agreement Friday afternoon to launch a “Registered Apprenticeship” program.

Through coordination with Georgia WorkSmart, the state’s apprenticeship program, both GNTC and Roper will begin training apprentices in the Mechatronics program.

What is Apprenticeship in Georgia? The website defines it as, “…a work-based training method that combines formal instruction with on-site, occupation-related training. Apprentices typically work 30-40 hours per week and receive classroom training through part-time attendance at technical colleges, universities or approved training providers. Using the apprentice model can help businesses grow their own talent and build a motivated and qualified workforce. Employers use apprentice programs to recruit and train new employees and to upskill their current workforce.”

Stay tuned for the full story next week on this new partnership between one of the region’s largest employers and the region’s largest college.
