ApprenticeNYC: Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) Machine Operators is a competitive 18-month program that provides wage support to help businesses train entry-level CNC machine operators.
Individuals with minimal to no experience in CNC operations will be selected by employers through a rigorous series of assessments (including aptitude assessments and interviews) to follow an accelerated training model. The NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS) manages the assessment process and will cover a portion of the apprentice’s wages during the 18-month program period. The program has five components, which include employment, technical-hands on instruction, on-the-job training, wage increases, and ultimately a new job title.
This program is a fit for your company if you are:
- Having trouble finding qualified CNC machine operators
- Ready to hire now and committed to train and mentor your apprentice over 18 months
- Willing to increase your apprentice’s wages over the 18-month period based on their increasing expertise and skill development.
