NTMA apprenticeship instructors rise to Covid-19 challenge
With the rapidly changing environment created by the need for closures of schools throughout the nation, the Pittsburgh Chapter - NTMA Apprenticeship Instructors were faced with the challenge of how to provide the required related theory and classroom instruction to their apprentices? How should the program transition from classroom instruction to remote learning and how  should new technology solutions be implemented?  Not only did the program succeed at addressing these, and many other challenges, it excelled. To learn the answers to these questions and more, watch for the Spring 2020 edition mailing of the " Precision Pittsburgh " newsletter or visit  http://pghntma.com/news/
Congratulations to the 29 4th year apprentices that are graduating from the apprenticeship program!

M2K Spotlight
Shawn previously worked as an auto mechanic, and had spent the past three years working seven days a week.

Seeking a rewarding career, he joined the M2K program in November, 2019. “I was always fascinated by the process,” he said. “I learned how to approach the jobs and plan each step of the process from print to the completed part.”

Through the New Century Job Shop, Shawn also gained real-world, hands-on experience working on orders for local manufacturers, including machine, robotics fixturing, and weldment components.

Shawn accepted a job as a machinist in early April at a shop less than four miles from his house. He was excited to be running both a milling machine and a Clausing Colchester Lathe. His first job was to machine a clevis pin for a crane.
New Century Job Shop
Job Shop will be reopening on June 1st!
