Central Arizona College is providing innovative training and opportunities for companies to upskill their employees to ensure that Pinal County has a strong workforce.
In 2019, CAC, in partnership with Pima Community College and the Maricopa Community College District, received the Industry Recognized Apprenticeship Model in Manufacturing Department of Labor grant to help Arizona’s manufacturers expand and strengthen their workforce.
The grant focuses on a Learn & Earn model in which apprentices receive classroom training at CAC while shadowing an experienced journeyperson during work hours. Apprenticeships provide cutting-edge training and give employers the ability to develop their own talent while reducing turnover.
