From computer support specialists to mechanical and medical technicians, many of today’s jobs in computing, advanced manufacturing, and other growth industries require more training than a high school diploma but less than a bachelor’s degree. Plus, apprenticeships are rapidly gaining steam nationwide to directly give participants hands-on work experiences while they learn skills necessary for these and other jobs. This session will examine the variety of opportunities available, and several educators and employers will discuss promising programs and effective strategies that help professionals young and old get trained and get hired.
