Register for the ApprenticeshipNC Sandhills Virtual Summit


A new year means you can explore new ways of doing things. Start off 2021 by joining us for our free virtual summit on Thursday, Jan. 21, from 9-11 a.m.

Learn how ApprenticeshipNC makes it easier for Sandhills-area businesses and organizations to bring on new workers and advance existing employees, build employee loyalty and foster new leadership.

Topics will showcase the value of apprenticeship in filling the skills gap with new hires, how to build your own talent pool of employees specifically geared to your needs, and how investments in training increase your bottom line.

Guest presenters also will address the benefits of youth apprenticeships and involving military veterans in apprenticeship programs.

If you have questions about the summit, please contact Antwan Pippen by email or at 919-538-2185.
