Siemen's Technology will pilot a new apprenticeship program focused on developing skills for the EV industry

Siemen’s technology company has recently piloted a new apprenticeship program called the eMobility Experience focused on training participants in specialized skills required for the EV industry. The new program was created in hopes of helping Siemens increase their hiring efforts while also keeping up with the increased demand of the industry is currently seeing. Siemens is actively searching for prospective positions in manufacturing and engineering and hopes that its apprenticeship program will help to alleviate some of these openings.

“This month, Siemens and its partner Wake Technical Community College (WTCC) launched a new apprenticeship program at its eMobility manufacturing hub in Wendell, N.C. The program is state-approved and registered with ApprenticeshipNC. Siemens is also partnering with NCTAP, an apprenticeship program based in the North Carolina Triangle area, to help develop its program and recruit apprentices. Starting in the 11th grade of high school, this four-year program focuses on integrated basic training which develops technical, methodological and social skills. The partnership with Siemens and Wake Technical Community College through the NCTAP consortia is invaluable to the Triangle region as it invests in local high school talent and provides career pathways for students closer to home,” said Shante Bell, North Central Region consultant for ApprenticeshipNC. “At the end of the four-year program, the students have not only earned an associate degree in their field of study, but they have also established a career with a major company in the Triangle.”

Students who participate in Siemens program will split their time by attending classis’s part time while simultaneously receiving hands-on manufacturing experience from industry professionals while also receiving all the full-time benefits of a full-time employee. On top of their apprenticeship program Siemens will also pilot a training program that will aim to help participants who are just starting out to develop their skills in the EV industry. The program will last around 90 days and participants will gain valuable knowledge in software and hardware engineering as well as embedded systems and cloud platforms.
