Machinist Apprentice Program

MachineUtah.org is a campaign sponsored by the Northern Utah chapter of the National Tooling and Machining Association (NUNTMA) to attract and recruit machinist apprentices for high-tech skilled jobs along the Wasatch Front.

Funded by a grant awarded by the Utah Cluster Acceleration Partnership (UCAP) program, the Machinist Apprentice Program is open to candidates who have completed high school and are at least 18 years of age. The four-year program includes 8,000 hours of on-the-job training and 576 hours of classroom training. Candidates who complete the program will receive the nationally recognized journeyman's certificate, as issued by the U.S. Department of Labor.
