The partnership’s apprenticeship programs will be offered in conjunction with Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C), Cleveland, OH, and Lorain County Community College, Elyria, OH, and will take place in Medina County at Tri-C’s Brunswick, OH, campus. The initial focus will be on training for advanced manufacturing, with each company attaining certification for its specific apprenticeship program.
