Applications are being accepted for the Machinist Apprenticeship Program sponsored by the Laboratory and Northern New Mexico College.
The Machinist Apprenticeship Program provides apprentices with classroom instruction and on-the-job experience in machine tool operations. Apprentices work under a professional machinist and receive the education and experience required for certification from the New Mexico State Apprenticeship Council as journeyman machinists. Apprentices also receive a salary during their tenure, according to the MAP salary structure and budget.
The Lab restored a Machinist Apprenticeship Program to relieve the need for certified machinists at the Lab. Apprentices are regularly hired as full-time machinists at the Lab after the completion of the program.
The Machinist Apprenticeship Program is open to all Laboratory and non-Laboratory U.S. citizens over 18 years old. Applicants must be able to obtain a Department of Energy Q clearance, should have a high-school diploma and an aptitude in mechanics/machining.
The deadline to apply for the program is April 25.
For information on application requirements and processes, contact Melanie Martinez of Deployed Shops (PF-DS) at 7-0360, or write to firstname.lastname@example.org by electronic mail.
