DOL Grant and Apprenticeship Programs

Last summer, DRMA was awarded the Dayton region’s portion of a state-wide Department of Labor grant to increase the number of training programs offering industry-recognized credentials, the number of people earning credentials, and the number of manufacturers employing people with the credentials. Partners are Sinclair Community College, Clark State Community College, and the adult division at the Miami Valley Career Technology Center.

We are tasked with credentialing at least 365 individuals over four years, including incumbent workers and people new to the industry. We’re still working with our partners to align their curriculum and course offerings, but if you’re interested in learning more please let us know! We’ll be rolling out more information in the coming months.
