    Default Machinist Apprenticeship in NYC?

    Hello, sorry if I'm posting in the wrong forum. I'm a TIG welder looking to get into Machining. Does anyone know about any training or apprenticeship opportunities around the Bronx, NY area? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    .
    .
    many colleges offer night school machining courses as well as school during the day. they often have a degree program like associates degree. they often have a job posting board where local manufacturers have job postings.
    .
    big companies that used to run apprentice programs often just have a local college do the training now. cause when times are slow often the big company that had a dedicated building for training there might be few if any students during slow years. they just use the college as needed.
    .
    some unions have apprenticeship training and some companies still have apprenticeship training but with a college as you get a degree its more universally recognized.
    .
    often you have to ask other people. networking is where somebody recommends you for a job. sometimes through school sometimes by somebody you know like a uncle. it can be hard to get in a union unless you know somebody
    .
    sad thing is many companies offer a $1000 bonus for any employee who recommends somebody for a job (already trained) and complains they cannot find enough people. many companies are really delaying training new people.

    Thanks for the info Tom, you’re right it’s really tough to find training at jobs,I’ve checked schools around my area but they mostly teach just crash courses on CAD. Again thanks so much.

    QT:[commute to NJ.].... better to move to NJ

    Nj to Bronx about $21 in road and bridge fees the way I last went...Go figure how can a guy/gall afford that everyday? actually went to Rockaway so had the Marine Parkway bridge fee also..

    Still good to be entry level in the machine trade with taking classes on the side..the big /best shops like one who is doing that..
