With the help of Pitt Community College and ApprenticeshipNC, ECVC, Inc. (Eastern Carolina Vocational Center), started a Custodian Apprenticeship Program on April 1.

It is one of the first types of apprenticeship programs in North Carolina and supports ECVC’s mission, as well as Gov. Roy Cooper’s official declaration of North Carolina as an Employment First State.

“Employment First” refers to the belief that employment in the general workforce should be the first and preferred option for individuals with disabilities.

The Pre-Apprenticeship Program  — Part I — lasts 6-weeks and includes classroom instruction (both soft and job-specific skills) and structured on-the-job training. Then, each person will need to complete 2,000 hours of on-the-job training  for Part II.

Upon successful completion of the program, each student will earn a Journeyman’s Certificate (state and national credentials) indicating a high level of professional expertise. ECVC’s first pre-apprenticeship class started with six individuals and all graduated at a ceremony held on May 9.

Although ECVC initially invested in a program like this to enhance its own workforce’s job skills and develop potential employees for its expanding janitorial services business, plans are to expand to add other occupations in the future.

Anyone interested in ECVC’s Custodian Apprenticeship Program are encouraged to call, Darone Dancy, HR generalist at 317-3145.
