Our Successes

Manufacturers Association of Central New York

Manufacturers have been experiencing a skilled worker shortage over the past few years.

In an effort to assist companies find new employees, the Manufacturers Intermediary Apprenticeship Program (MIAP) was created, targeted at raising the skill levels of both incumbent and entry level manufacturing workers while filling a crucial staffing need within the industry. The successful pilot of MIAP in Central New York created a statewide need to expand and support registered apprenticeships in high demand sectors. With the help of OA in identifying funding, the MIAP program has expanded to many other regions of NYS.
