General Motors (GM) Apprenticeship Program

The course work will require up to 672 hours of related technical instruction in a classroom setting and approximately 7920 hours of on the job training with an assigned qualified Journeyperson.

If your interest is in Engineering, a GM-UAW Apprentice in engineering would have the opportunity to learn, utilize, maintain, build, problem solve and design new technologies and innovative concepts, including pre-production vehicles and propulsion systems, die construction, vehicle concepts and restorations. An Apprentice, in Manufacturing and/or Engineering, would learn how to communicate effectively with other tradespersons and members of Management in a fast-paced team driven environment.
