Barron has registered its apprenticeship program with the U.S. Department of Labor! Barron’s first registered apprentice is Paul Patrick.

“I’m very lucky to have this opportunity at Barron Industries,” said Patrick. “My professional goal is to become a journeyman and eventually a master so I can teach someone else some day as well as my mentor is teaching me.”

Barron’s four-year CNC apprenticeship consists of 8,000 hours of paid on-the-job training and 576 hours of classroom instruction. Barron is sponsoring the apprenticeship with a $1,800 annual stipend from Michigan Works! Going Pro Skilled Labor Training is a program that teaches skilled laborers how to work in the field.
