Smith Foundry to participate in apprenticeship program


AFS Corporate Member Smith


Foundry Company (Minneapolis) an- nounced it will participate in the Indus- trial Manufacturing Technician (IMT) Apprenticeship program, an 18-month long, 3,000-hour program that will build a pipeline of highly qualified and diverse individuals prepared to enter middle- and high-skilled occupations within the manufacturing sector. Developed by the Wisconsin


Regional Training Partnership, AFL-CIO Working for America Institute, Jobs for the Future, and the U.S. Department of Labor, the IMT Apprenticeship is a “hybrid internship”—it integrates traditional time-based learning and competency- based education, allowing workers to progress at their own pace. Te IMT Apprenticeship also helps workers gain needed skills to advance in their careers without quitting work to go back to school. Smith Foundry is the first foundry in Minnesota to participate in the IMT Apprenticeship. Te program will be made available to


all Smith Foundry Company employees, and it will complement an internal train- ing program which is focused on a wide variety of skills associated with met- alcasting. Te end result will be workers who are trained both generally in sound manufacturing practices, and specifically in their metalcasting trade. Te appren- tices are full-time employees and will earn regular wages while they complete their training. “We are very excited to be able to


offer the IMT Apprenticeship to our employees, because they deserve every opportunity to see success, not just at Smith Foundry Company, but through- out their careers,” said Nathan CW Smith, president and CEO of Smith Foundry Company. “Te IMT Appren- ticeship is an exceptional opportunity for them, for their families, for Minnesota’s manufacturing industry, and for our community here in Minneapolis.”
