Milestones in NCC's 20-year history
In March 2019, New Century Careers' MANUFACTURING 2000 (M2K) Machinist Training Program was recognized as a registered pre-apprenticeship program by the PA Department of Labor and Industry, Apprenticeship and Training Office. This allows trainees an opportunity to receive advanced placement into the Pittsburgh Chapter NTMA 4-year Machinist Apprenticeship Program.

NCC Board of Directors Spotlight
Sandy Madden joined the Board in 2016 after being matched with NCC through the Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management BoardsWork! Program.

"I was impressed with NCC's dual client mission of serving both individuals looking to expand their skills through technical training and manufacturers looking to hire trained machinists," Sandy said. "It's an honor to serve on the Board of an organization that makes such a difference in students' lives. I'm also inspired by the NCC team and their dedication and innovation in meeting the mission."

Sandy is the Senior Director of Data, Reporting, and Compliance at Propel Schools. Her responsibilities include maintaining all sources of student data in support of organizational activities, state and federal reporting, and community presentation. Prior to Propel, Sandy worked in procurement at Alcoa and supply chain management at Eaton Corporation. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with dual majors in Accounting and General Management from the University of Pittsburgh.

Thank you Sandy for sharing your expertise!
