Companies that start apprenticeship programs are taking a long view at training for necessary skill sets and are helping to fill much needed jobs in many industries. To get a better take on the process, we interviewed two companies that have Registered Apprenticeship programs to get their input on launching a program and the opportunities or issues they have experienced. We went to opposite sides of the state and visited with Rick Farrell of Farrell’s Heating and Air Conditioning in Sioux City, and Steve Gilbert with Gilbert Home Comfort in Leon for their insight on apprenticeship programs.

It’s no secret that Iowa needs more skilled workers. A 2014 report on Iowa education and workforce trends through 2025 finds that 68 percent of all Iowa jobs are expected to require post-secondary education and training beyond high school. In fact, the goal of the Governor’s Future Ready Iowa initiative is calling for 70 percent of Iowans in the workforce to have this education and training by 2025.
Tomorrow marks the fifth annual Manufacturing Day, a day dedicated to highlighting the industry, it’s career possibilities, and the advancements that have propelled manufacturing beyond the old, traditional assembly line. And one Iowa organization is continuously advancing additive manufacturing and positioning Iowa as a leader in the industry - the Additive Manufacturing Center (AMC), part of the Metal Casting Center at the University of Northern Iowa.
