In February of 2017 we announced that AMS Fulfillment and College of the Canyons (COC) were creating a ‘Great Opportunity’. COC had just informed the media of their partnership program with AMS, beginning in January 2017, in which 17 apprenticeships in warehousing and shipping would be offered.
Our ongoing blogs tell the story of the program being successfully launched and recognized nationally as the first of its kind in California between a college and an employer. The most recent news is that COC was awarded a grant from the Department of Labor to continue its groundbreaking work in apprenticeship.
A number of our valued employees have taken advantage of the apprenticeship opportunity. We’re pleased to announce 17 individuals will be recognized and receive Certificates of Completion from the US Department of Labor at a luncheon, hosted by COC at our AMS Learning Center. The date is November 12th, which coincides with National Apprenticeship Week. This event will be recognized by the Department of Labor on their website.
The names of those apprentices being recognized are: Norma S., Linda E., Cristy G., Preston F., Natalia A. G., Erick R., Rosalio M. Sr., Russell M., Lucas H., Morgan M., Brenda F., Jaime B., Michael L., Leonard L., Vanessa H., Scott L., Rudolfo R.
National Apprenticeship Week (NAW)
Now in its fifth year, National Apprenticeship Week is a nationwide celebration that gives businesses, communities, and educators the opportunity to showcase their apprenticeship programs and apprentices while providing valuable information to career seekers. NAW 2019 will be held November 11-17, 2019.
What is Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway where employers can develop and prepare their future workforce, and individuals can obtain paid work experience, classroom instruction, and a portable, nationally-recognized credential.
