Apprenticeship Program Partnerships

The Manufacturers Alliance Intermediary Apprenticeship Program holds a nationally recognized credential, signifying that we work with the best of the best partners to ensure both apprentices and the companies involved receive a valuable experience. 

Our partners help strengthen the manufacturing workforce by providing on-the-job training, traditional classroom learning, and Related Technical Instruction (RTI). Skill development is crucial in our industry, and our partners don’t disappoint. 

These organizations also make it as easy as possible for both apprentices and businesses to take part in our program by offering low-cost, or even free, options. 


There's a reason why more than half of Fortune 500 educational facilities and manufacturers work with ToolingU-SME. The Manufacturers Alliance Intermediary Apprenticeship Program is extremely proud of our partnership with ToolingU-SME as we further improve the industry's workforce.
