Apprentice & Manufacturing Ready (AMR)

The Apprenticeship and Manufacturing Ready (AMR) program is a partnership between Roseville Adult Learning Center (RALC) and KOM. AMR is a FREE career training for those who are interested in getting a job in construction, welding, and manufacturing. In the program, participants will be introduced to these jobs through both classroom and hands-on learning.

During the training, students will gain confidence, literacy and skills to enter those career fields. They will learn how to use many tools and machines, trade math, blueprint reading, solar energy and more. They will also receive a Forklift & Safety Certificate, CPR & First Aid training, and a Northstar Digital Literacy certificate. On their visits to different apprenticeship training centers, students will get to see what it would be like to work in that specific trade.

At the end, AMR participants will have the chance to be placed in an apprenticeship program in one of the building trades and a job with a contractor that starts off paying an average of $16 – $26 per hour. Students without a U.S. high school diploma or GED will also get the chance to receive a high school diploma from Roseville Area Schools upon completion of the program! Each participant also receives career counseling and social service navigation support throughout the 7 months.

AMR Summer Training

KOM and the RALC also offer an AMR Summer Training program that runs for 5 weeks. It is a great opportunity for anyone who is 18 years old or older to learn new skills in construction. We will help with job placement at the end of the training for students who have a diploma or GED. Those students will start an apprenticeship and get hired by a contractor where they can make $16-26 per hour to start! If they don’t have a diploma or GED, they can enroll in our 7-month AMR training that will start in September 2020.
