The application review process usually starts twice a year (fall and spring), where applications are reviewed and candidates are interviewed by members of an Apprenticeship Program Committee.
Upon acceptance into the program, apprentices are assigned to a “home plant” to begin their training. Specific Remmele personnel, including supervisors and journeyperson machinists, are involved in training new apprentices using a structured on-the-job training format Apprentices are also required to take classroom courses, the cost of which is absorbed by the company. Progress in the program is tracked through competency evaluations and classroom course exams.
An apprentice achieves journeyperson machinist status following completion of one year of basic training and 2.5 years of advanced training, assuming that all other program requirements are met.
