KY FAME Apprenticeship Events Planned at MCTC

March 9, 2021
by Brady Shultz

The KY FAME apprenticeship program at Maysville Community and Technical College (MCTC) is currently seeking new students for the Fall 2021 semester. 

KY FAME provides students the opportunity to simultaneously work and learn while gaining experience as an apprentice in the high-wage, high-demand field of Advanced Manufacturing.  

Josh Wheeler, MCTC KY Fame GraduateOnce accepted into the program, students earn a two-year degree in Advanced Manufacturing Technician (AMT) while attending classes two full days per week and working in a paid position at a local employer three days a week. This gives students the opportunity to graduate with a degree and two years work experience with little to no debt and a potential job. During the five-semester program, students will learn applications in electricity, robotics, mechanics, fabrication, hydraulic/pneumatic power and more.
