Many organizations say their people come first, but at OMS, we take steps to make this more than just a company line. By equipping our team members with workforce development and mentoring, they gain the knowledge and competencies necessary to thrive in an advanced manufacturing environment.
Our Pittsburgh team members recently completed 18 months of instruction from the Industrial Manufacturing Technician Apprenticeship Program offered by Catalyst Connection. Graduates of the IMT program were required to undergo 3,000 hours of technical instruction and on-the-job (OTJ) training to advance their manufacturing technology skills.
OTJ training hours were earned under the supervision of experienced mentors and covered the complete production work cycle including safety, equipment setup and operations, equipment maintenance, and use of mechanical tools and testing equipment.
Apprentices also completed courses in industrial math, industrial communication, manufacturing technology systems and processes, industrial blueprint reading, OSHA 010, and First Aid/CPR. Additional instruction included interpersonal skills, lean manufacturing, and practical problem-solving.
We are proud of our Pittsburgh IMT Apprenticeship Program graduates. Their dedication has enabled OMS to be even more successful in today’s advanced production environment. Congratulations!
