The Marine Trades Industry Partnership for JOBS TODAY
With a grant from EARN Maryland (Employment Advancement Right Now), MTAM has formed the Marine Trades Industry Partnership with the mission of building a sustainable workforce for the marine trades in Maryland. The Partnership consists of employers in the boating industry, local workforce development professionals and educators.
The program consists of recruiting young people to the industry, training them in a 6-week on-the-job practicum, training the industry’s incumbent workers, matching workers to immediate job openings and train-the-trainer sessions for the employers. On the horizon is the development of a full Apprenticeship program for the boating industry in Maryland.
