The California Advanced Manufacturing Apprenticeship Collaborative (CAMAC) is a partnership between industry, community colleges, ToolingU, and Goodwill Southern California. CAMAC is a US Department of Labor (DOL) registered apprenticeship that incorporates 16 occupations into a set of standards. The partners agree to the Pattern Standards of Apprenticeship and Goodwill acts as the administrative glue, coordinating activity and ensuring compliance to the program.
At a time when the middle-skills gap has garnered an enormous amount of attention, and patience is waning from industry, workforce, and economic systems, apprenticeship is making a return to “Made in California” manufacturing! This is NOT ‘old-school’ apprenticeship. This is 21st Century, hybridized, competency-based, apprenticeship.
We hope you'll join us to learn more about this modern approach to workforce development and apprenticeship training!
