Maker Professional Apprenticeship

Vocademy and Made Right Here have partnered to help create the workforce of the future. Our goal is to train people in a broad range of hands-on skills on a fundamental level.  Unlike the “depth” of existing (subject focused) apprenticeship programs, our approach is to teach a “breadth” of different skills. We do this in an intensive 3-month (300 hour) program at our facility in Riverside.

In partnership with employers, we create a workforce with a very good set of hands-on skills and a desire to work in the world of Advanced Manufacturing . The Maker Professional Apprenticeship Program is recognized and registered with the Federal Department of Labor and California Department Of Apprenticeships. It is an ideal solution for established companies of all sizes and start-ups looking for a skilled workforce. We create the generalists that our employer partners make into specialists!

We are looking for employers and job seekers to join our Apprenticeship Program.
