Implementation Model: Skilled Trades Apprenticeship Program


“Skilled-trades workers such as HVAC technicians and electricians are among the hardest positions to fill not just for Healthcare, but across building sectors, resulting in a technical gap in workforce expertise. With the impending retirement of many of these skilled-trades workers, the need for a new generation of trained professionals that is familiar with modern, energy-efficient technology is in demand. To address this demand, the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) developed its own Skilled Trades Apprenticeship Program, accredited by the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation. The program provides a path for individuals to develop the knowledge, skills, abilities, and experience to qualify to work in the trade at the full performance level.”
