I. Registered Apprenticeship Program:

a. Dynamic Pre-Apprenticeship with Practical Skills – 2 months: Embark on a comprehensive two-month journey of classroom and hands-on instruction to learn biology, chemistry, soft skills, and industry-specific business knowledge. Immerse yourself in hands-on laboratory training and acquire knowledge about Good Manufacturing Practice. During these two months, you will attend in-person classes at local colleges, ensuring a supportive and interactive learning environment that prepares you for the workplace.

All participants who successfully complete the two months of classroom and hands-on instruction will earn a Biofabrication Certificate and will have the opportunity to earn industry-recognized credentials, including: 1) microcredentials offered through the Bioscience Core Skills Institute and 2) documented successful completion of the Biotechnician Assistant Credentialing Exam.

A monthly stipend is provided to support each Apprentice during these two months of instruction.

b. On-the-Job Training (OJT) – 12 months: Following the two months of instruction, Apprentices begin one year of paid OJT and mentorship. Upon completion of the Apprenticeship, employers may choose to offer Apprentices permanent employment.

Full-time compensation with benefits: Our program includes health insurance and vacation to support your well-being throughout this transformative journey.

II. Embedded Certificate Program: Individuals who apply and are not admitted to the Registered Apprenticeship Program can still attend our classroom and hands-on instruction free of charge.
