Anthony Meledandri

Ron and Debbie Meledandri have chosen to honor the memory of their son, Anthony, with a generous donation to New Century Careers. Anthony successfully completed the M2K program at NCC in 2015. He was placed at Kurt J. Lesker, where he was an exemplary employee. We proudly remember Anthony with one of his CNC projects pictured here.

NCC Hosts Apprentice Competition

The Pittsburgh Chapter NTMA/ MSC Apprenticeship Competition was held on March 3 at NCC's Training Innovation Center. The participants were tested for their hands-on performance in setting up and operating machine tools such as lathes and mills, as well as a written examination to assess content knowledge. A point system based on knowledge, skill and efficiency determined the winner. The competition was open to all trainees of the Pittsburgh Chapter NTMA Apprenticeship program and the winner will be announced at graduation this year.
