Governor Wolf to Tour Philly Shipyard Apprenticeship Training Academy

Philly Shipyard, 1901 Kitty Hawk Ave, Building #68, Philadelphia, PA

Governor Wolf will be in Philadelphia to tour the Philly Shipyard and the Philly Shipyard Apprenticeship Training Academy.

Ensuring access to quality apprenticeship and job training programs for Pennsylvania’s workforce is a top priority for Governor Wolf. Governor Wolf’s 2017-18 budget includes an apprenticeship grant program – both for those leaving the K-12 education system and those transitioning into a new industry sector.

Philly Shipyard established the apprenticeship program in 2004. The three-year program was created to develop the next generation of shipyard skilled workers and leaders.
