The program allows small- and medium-sized manufacturers in the state to engage with trainees, offering them career advice and pre-employment training.

Pennsylvania has allocated $100,000 to help train entry-level personnel for a career in manufacturing. The funding, which comes from Pennsylvania’s Manufacturing Training-to-Career (MTTC) program, will be given to Catalyst Connection to support their Essential Skills for Manufacturing (ESM) plan. The program allows small- and medium-sized manufacturers in the state to engage with trainees, offering them career advice and pre-employment training.

In a recent quote, Governor Tom Wolf said, “Since day one, my administration has been committed to investing in valuable training programs like ESM that create direct pathways to connect job seekers with permanent employment. This new funding will help entry-level workers in southwestern Pennsylvania get the crucial skills they need to successfully enter the job market.”
