The Front Line Supervisor Apprentice Program is a virtual training based on the apprentice model of learning in the classroom and then applying what you learn on-the-job. The class was developed after the manufacturing community recognized that they often promoted people from within and did not give them the training and tools to be successful in their new roles. Supervisors are key employees and need to have a good tool box and mentoring to build on as they grow in their career. 

This program is a registered apprenticeship with the state's Division of Apprentice Standards. This determines the number of classes, the hours of training and the OJT application required. 

Three modules make up the 35 class, year long training. Leadership Skills, Manufacturing Principles and Problem Solving. Students finish off with a capstone project at graduation to showcase a problem they have taken on at their workplace, how it was resolved and the resulting impacts.
