Apprentice & Manufacturing Ready (AMR)

The Apprenticeship and Manufacturing Ready (AMR) program is a partnership between the Roseville Adult Learning Center and the Karen Organization of Minnesota. Now in its 4th year, AMR focuses on preparing students for a registered apprenticeship in the trades.

Our 8-month program gives people the chance to earn a high school diploma from Roseville Area Schools. The diploma is competency-based, which means the participants show their knowledge through reflection writing and demonstrating ability instead of graded tests. AMR includes classroom teaching, hands-on training where students learn basic hand and power tools, and visits to union training centers and construction sites. The class is tailored for people who are not native English speakers.

Roseville Adult Learning Center and KOM also offer a condensed AMR class in the summer that does not offer a diploma.

Once participants finish the class, the AMR career counselor will work with them to find a job in the trades, where they can make a living wage (often starting at $20-22 with a raise every 6 months) without college debt.
