Promoting Manufacturing Awareness in High Schools (June 2017) Back Promoting Manufacturing Awareness in High Schools (June 2017)

To promote our apprenticeship program and awareness of manufacturing career opportunities, ACCU-FAB regularly works with local high schools in the Raleigh/Durham area.  Recently, Gregg Page, President of ACCU-FAB, hosted a group of 9th grade future welding students from Vernon Malone College and Career Academy, which is Wake County’s first Career and Technical Education (CTE) High School. The students received a plant tour and learned about ACCU-FAB’s apprenticeship program and possible careers in manufacturing. Pictured below is the group during their tour of our plant.Turret Rib Tool Collage

ACCU-FAB, as a partner in the North Carolina Triangle Apprenticeship Program (NCTAP), also visited several local high schools to educate and recruit potential students interested in a manufacturing career path. In association with NCTAP, ACCU-FAB collaborates with Vance Granville Community College and Wake Technical College to promote a regional apprenticeship program for continuing the manufacturing education process after high school.

Through our involvement with high school students, ACCU-FAB continues to invest in the community, the future of our youth and promote their involvement in local manufacturing.
