During the 2nd Annual Pennsylvania Apprenticeship Summit held in Hershey, Pa., Wistar’s Biomedical Research Technician (BRT) Apprenticeship was named the 2019 Outstanding Non-traditional Apprenticeship Program by the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry.
This 2nd PA Apprenticeship Summit shows the emphasis the Commonwealth is placing on creating new training opportunities to connect jobseekers with highly specialized jobs.
Nontraditional apprenticeships serve the community by applying the model used by skilled trades to place highly skilled, qualified workers into the job market.
