In 2013 Kent Misegades, Owner & President of AeroSouth Technology, founded the North Carolina Triangle Apprenticeship Program (NCTAP) along with Raleigh (NC) - area manufacturers. He wanted regional youth to have the same outstanding career-entry path into engineering and manufacturing that he knew from his years working in Europe. Inspired by the pioneering work of Apprenticeship 2000 (Charlotte, NC), NCTAP leaders set up a world-class program in less than a year, strictly guided and funded by partner companies and following best practices used for centuries in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. Kent can help your company create an apprenticeship program that will provide your company with a world-class workforce. Contact him now to explore possibilities.
