PONTIAC, MI, USA, Mar 22, 2018 – Later this week, DASI Solutions & Focus: HOPE will be graduating their second cohort of students who were enrolled in their Pre-Apprenticeship Program. The graduation will take place this Thurday, March 22nd at Focus: HOPE in Detroit.

This program was developed to help bridge the skilled trade’s gap that has been affecting the manufacturing and engineering industries across the region. Unlike the Industrial Design Technician Apprenticeship Program (also offered through DASI & Focus: HOPE), this 10 week course is designed to enhance general skills & knowledge of its participants in order to prepare them for jobs in the engineering and manufacturing industries.

To book-end the process, the day after the Pre-Apprenticeship graduation, DASI Solutions & Focus: HOPE will be conducting a Reverse Job Fair for the graduates. The graduates have been trained for 10 weeks; they have had 100 hours of SolidWorks instruction with many more hours practiced at home. In addition to that, the students have also had 100+ hours of instruction in fundamentals such as Blueprints, Integrated Descriptive Geometry, Customer Service and GD & T.

The Reverse Job Fair will consist of 15 candidates who will be ready and waiting to meet with potential employers with their resumes, credentials & portfolios. Employers will have the opportunity to conduct informal interviews on the spot or invite the candidates to a formal interview at a later date.

“Pre-apprenticeship training is an efficient avenue to help build a pipeline of talent that leads directly to the industry’s needs,” stated Adam Majkowski, Apprenticeship Specialist at DASI Solutions. “It is the best way to offer hands-on training to career-ready individuals and I am excited to see the success of this program, knowing that we are helping to provide a larger qualified talent pool for the future of both the engineering and manufacturing industries.”
