Location, Location, Location?

How do multi-location companies address such a challenge? Many resort to building multiple apprenticeship programs, resulting in wasted time and money navigating varying regulatory hurdles, finding multiple training partners, and duplicating efforts building and managing programs at each facility. The end products are apprenticeships that include different teaching methods, training curriculum, and ultimately outcomes.
But training innovation has overcome these deficiencies while reducing administrative burdens and cost. National program providers such as Penn College deliver identical programs to multiple locations, often simultaneously. Additionally, technology advances allow for the inclusion of virtual labs, shift differential accommodations, and fully interactive expert-led trainings across any time zone.
Whether you’re just developing your company apprenticeship strategy, or expanding an existing program to multiple sites, consider the benefits of a uniform, nationally built program. This results in the three most important things in manufacturing – consistency, consistency, consistency.
