Dow Apprenticeship Program To Include LA Manufacturing Facilities
NEW ORLEANS – Earlier this year, The Dow Chemical Company announced the expansion of the Dow U.S. Apprenticeship program to include Louisiana manufacturing facilities, Louisiana Operations in Plaquemine and St. Charles Operations in Hahnville in 2016.
This program is targeted toward men and women interested in pursuing a career as an instrument electrical technician, process technician or millwright.
Through a partnership between Dow and the Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS), these apprentices will work toward their associate’s degree while acquiring three years of world-class training and on-the-job experience. During this time, the apprentices will have their tuition funded by Dow and they will receive a competitive salary that increases incrementally over their tenure in the program. Upon completion of the program, apprentices will be evaluated for employment opportunities at Dow.
The Dow U.S. Apprenticeship Program supports a major initiative of the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP), a national effort to secure U.S. leadership in emerging technologies by creating high-quality manufacturing jobs and enhancing America’s global competitiveness.
