The CT Department of Labor Office of Apprenticeship Training recently recognized the Pipeline program as a as a quality pre-apprenticeship program. This recognition will result in Pipeline training program graduates being awarded credentials as part of the state’s advancement of Registered Apprenticeship programs to various manufacturing employers in the region. This means Pipeline training graduates will now have the opportunity to apply to be a Registered Apprentice in the state!
