Apprenticeship Program

 

Allen Tool Phoenix is proud to announce our participation in the New York State Manufacturing Intermediary Apprenticeship Program (NYSMIAP) sponsored by the Manufacturers Association of Central New York. NYSMIAP is an employer-led, public-private pilot program for registered apprentices in manufacturing occupations. The NYSMIAP is a unique business-lead approach targeted at raising the skill levels of incumbent manufacturing workers and creating distinctive career pathways while filling a crucial need within the industry. Our three apprentices began the four-year program for CNC Machinists on June 15th. In addition to daily on the job training, our apprentices are attending OCC for their related instruction. Good luck gentlemen!

 


 

P-Tech Job Shadow

 

ATPI recently held a job shadowing event for Syracuse P-Tech students.  P-Tech is a specialized high school partnered with Onondaga Community College for students interested in Engineering or Machining.  The students met with different ATPI staff members to see how we program our machines, machine our parts, and inspect our parts. They had some hands on measuring as well.  We hope this new P-Tech program will inspire the students to pursue a career in manufacturing.

SUNY Advanced Manufacturing Job Fair

We participated in the SUNY Advanced Manufacturing Job Fair on Feb 5, 2016. Nick & Jamie did a great job showing off our parts and talking to folks. It was nice to see some of our partners there as well, like Anoplate, and Eaton Crouse-HInds. The education/training in the Syracuse area is getting a resurgence of talent with the help of programs like Cayuga Community Colleges, Mechanical Technology program. Central NY is responding to the needs in our area for advanced manufacturing. The PTECH high school/OCC program is another example that is proving to benefit our region.
