MUTI/Sabre Industries Reaffirms Support for Apprenticeships during 2nd National Apprenticeship Week
Telecommunications Tower Technician Registered Apprenticeship still the first and only RA of its type in the nation
By: Midwest Underground Technology/Sabre Industries
MUTI/Sabre is proud to offer the first registered apprenticeship for Telecommunication Tower Technicians in the country. Going into its second year, the Apprenticeship program has trained hundreds of employees in an ever-growing, dynamic industry.
"Our Apprenticeship program has truly transformed our company," said Scott Kisting, Senior Vice President of Risk and Compliance. "Since its founding in 2015, we've seen our business grow, our productivity skyrocket, and our employee turnover significantly decrease. I highly encourage those in our business community to explore options in establishing their own Apprenticeship programs." Kisting continued, "On the other hand, we strongly suggest hard-working, passionate individuals who want hands-on career training, a national industry certification, and pathways for growth contact us to learn more about this great opportunity!"
Apprenticeship is an "earn and learn" training model that combines work-based learning with related classroom instruction using the highest industry standards. According to Ronda Kliman, Apprenticeship and Training Coordinator with the U.S. Department of Labor, companies that offer apprenticeship programs can diversify their workforce, improve productivity and profitability, standardize training, reduce turnover, receive tax credits, and more.
"While 79 years ago, the apprenticeship system began and other skilled trades, today there are apprenticeships in more than 1,200 occupations, including careers in healthcare, IT, energy, telecommunications, and more," said Kliman. "The goal of the National Apprenticeship Week is to educate businesses and leaders about the importance of apprenticeship programs. These programs can lead to great jobs that also help positively impact our economy."
