RTMA Apprenticeship Program

Apprenticeship is a formalized training program that allows employees to earn while they learn. The RTMA is the greater Rochester and Finger Lakes regional sponsor of the NYS Registered Apprenticeship Program. Under an intermediary agreement with the NYS Department of Labor, the RTMA sponsors more than 15 advanced manufacturing trades. This exclusive sponsorship allows the RTMA to partner with companies under their sponsorship – which removes a significant burden for businesses.

The RTMA serves more than 35 companies and over 240 individual apprentices throughout the nine-county region. Companies are located in Monroe, Genesee, Livingston, Orleans, Wyoming, Wayne, Ontario, Seneca and Yates counties.

The RTMA has also received the distinction of Apprenticeship Ambassador from the United States Department of Labor (USDOL). USDOL recognized the Association for its commitment to modernizing, diversifying and expanding Registered Apprenticeships in the region. The Apprenticeship Ambassador initiative is a nationwide network of employers, industry associations and other workforce partners to serve as champions that promote the awareness and benefits of apprenticeship programs in underserved and underrepresented populations.
