CareerEdge Collaborates for Apprenticeship Programs

CareerEdge Funders Collaborative will be working with both Manatee Technical College(MTC) and Suncoast Technical College (STC).

At STC, CareerEdge will fund an automotive express program.  Students will be screened and interviewed by Gettel Automotive for employment and then once employed they will attend a 10 week tuition free automotive tech certification program.  They will leave the program employed by Gettel for $13 and hour and will have many opportunities to career-ladder within the organization.

At MTC, CareerEdge and the college are supporting plumbing and electrician express courses.  Both of the courses will be tuition free and students will be entering into high-demand industries that are actively seeking workers that are trained and qualified.

SRQ Magazine’s Freshly Squeezed also showcased the recent course offerings.  To read the entire article, click here.
