Behlen Mfg. Co. recently held a signing ceremony to set up a registered apprenticeship program with the Department of Labor. Behlen will now work in partnership with Columbus Public Schools, CCC, and DOL to provide development opportunities for young people looking for careers in manufacturing. The Behlen Mfg. apprentices who attended the ceremony spoke about the chance they’ve been given to do something they love while following the “earn while you learn” pathway that is going to be very common for students in the future.
This program represents a great partnership between schools, government, and private business that benefits all those involved. No surprise that it is happening in Columbus nor that it is happening at Behlen Mfg. Co. Congratulations to our members at Behlen Mfg.!
