METALFORM EDU approved by the Connecticut Department of Labor

METALFORM EDU (PMA’s online training platform) has been approved by the Connecticut Department of Labor Office for Apprenticeship-related Instruction (CTDOL/OAT)! 

What does this mean for you? Courses in METALFORM EDU, alongside your on-the-job-training (OJT), meet the training and curriculum standards set by the state to prepare individuals with the skills and competencies needed in manufacturing. If you have a registered apprenticeship program, you may be eligible for wages, training cost or credentialing reimbursement through the CT Manufacturing Innovation Fund Apprenticeship Program. To learn more about this program and to apply, visit the Connecticut Department of Economic Development’s website

If you do not have an apprenticeship program and wish to start one, reach out to PMA’s workforce development team. 

We want to thank PMA members Acme Monaco, Marion Manufacturing and Acme Wire Products for requesting approval and sponsoring METALFORM EDU on PMA’s behalf to make this part of the apprenticeship programs in CT.
