ABC’s MAP Reaching New Milestones

ABC MA’s Merit Apprenticeship Program (MAP) continues to grow and reach new milestones.  The program now has more than 200 registered apprentices, over 20 percent of whom are minorities.

And MAP is not resting on its laurels.  ABC MA Director of Workforce Development John Rich recently presented before the Northeast Vocational-Technical School Advisory Board and he is constantly beating the bushes to sign up new apprentices and companies.

MAP gives companies the opportunity to augment their hiring process and find qualified candidates from the program’s nine labor pools located across Massachusetts and in southern New Hampshire. The program can free human resource personnel or owners from much of the bureaucratic maze of paperwork, thus allowing them to focus on other important responsibilities.

MAP also provides member companies with the opportunity to bid on virtually any public sector prevailing wage job – be it federal, state, local or out-of-state – because the program is registered with the Department of Workforce Development’s Division of Apprentice Standards.
