Apprenticeship Opportunities

HCAM received a grant from the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity (LEO) that enables the association to provide 750 Registered Apprenticeships to facilities interested in offering training to staff. Registered apprenticeships are high-quality, work-based, earn-and-learn models that meet national standards for registration with the U.S. Department of Labor.

How it Impacts Providers
Grant funds of $1,000 per apprentice are available to cover the cost of the program’s registered apprenticeship education and training and assist employers with on-the-job learning wages. 

Why it Matters
The program will help employees build their long-term care careers by boosting knowledge and increasing skills. It’s also an excellent way for employers to improve recruitment and retention by offering the opportunity to earn certifications in a variety of practical areas.

Details
Registered apprenticeship opportunities are available for full-time and part-time new hires and current employees at skilled nursing facilities and assisted living communities. The requirements to participate include the following:
♦ Employed in good standing.
♦ Have completed required background checks with fingerprinting at least started.
♦ Have supplied all information/documents as required by LEO.

Key components of the program that will help ensure success:
♦ Apprentices will follow a structured and supported career path that will allow them to earn while they gain in-demand skills.
♦ Apprentices will be paired with mentors to guide them.

Upon completion of a program track, apprentices will earn certification and a corresponding wage increase.
