The Michigan Economic Development Corporation has partnered with Henry Ford Community College and Oakland Community College to create a new Michigan Advanced Technician Training Program.

Posted: 1/8/2013 - 07:06 AM

The new pilot program is based on the German model of dual education and employer commitment.  A student applies for the program and then they interview with a potential employer. Once they’re accepted and ‘hired’ they begin a three-year program where they will be paid to both go to school and work. Students alternate six-week periods in which they work at the manufacturing centers and go to school at either HFCC or OCC. During their work periods they are paid hourly starting at $18,000 per year and increasing each year.
