GLWA expands apprenticeship program to include track for maintenance technicians

DETROIT – The Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) today announced that it is expanding its Apprenticeship Program to include a new three-year, 10-month apprenticeship designed to train and hire up to 20 Maintenance Technicians for GLWA. Classes will begin in January 2019.

“At GLWA, we are committed to team member development at all levels. Expanding the Apprenticeship Program for our current and future GLWA team members is a result of that commitment,” said Stephanie Stevenson, director of organizational development, GLWA. “From operation-specific training to prepare team members for licensing, or state certification to two multi-year apprentice programs, GLWA has its eye on the future, and we need talented, well-qualified individuals to help get us there.”

GLWA has committed to launching one new U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) apprenticeship program per year until the system’s remaining needs are met to ensure a trained and sustainable workforce.
