Apprenticeship Program

A Solution to Meeting Growing Workforce Needs

To meet the growing need for a skilled workforce, New York State has provided funding for community colleges to develop one of the largest statewide public/private partnership apprenticeship programs in the country. The SUNY Apprenticeship Program will assist in developing Registered Apprenticeships in Advanced Manufacturing, Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence and other high-needs fields.

As an approved apprenticeship related-instruction (RI) provider, Suffolk County Community College’s Advanced Manufacturing Training Center is ready to support trade titles with related instruction in Advanced Manufacturing for the following trades:

  • CNC Machinist
  • Electro Mechanical Technician
  • Industrial Manufacturing Technician
  • Maintenance Mechanic (Automation Equipment)
  • Quality Assurance Auditor

The Apprenticeship Program is an employer-driven program through the New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL), where companies may be eligible to get a related-instruction portion of an apprenticeship covered.

To find out more about related-instruction training, becoming a sponsor, or if you are interested in being part of our roundtable discussion, contact Suffolk County Community College’s Advanced Manufacturing Training Center at 631-851-6200.

“Apprenticeship programs offer students the educational opportunities and hands-on experience they need to prepare them for the jobs of the future,” Governor Cuomo said. See Press Release for more information.

The New York College Apprenticeship Network is paid for by a $7.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration, administered by The Research Foundation for the State University of New York. and
