Oberg Industries, a full-service contract manufacturer of precision metal components and assemblies, was awarded approval from the State of Pennsylvania for six new apprenticeship training programs. These include two CNC programs for operators and setup programmers in each of the following areas: turning, milling and mill/turn. All apprentice programs at Oberg are competency-based.

Oberg Industries has had apprenticeship training programs since the company began, with numerous courses ranging from CAD die designer, precision EDM operator, and precision stamping press operator, to precision machinist specialist, CNC machine setup operator, to die component specialist. 

Oberg’s apprenticeship training is an “earn while you learn” program that combines work-based learning with CBT (computer-based training) and related classroom instruction. There is no cost to the student. The company provides the materials, training, knowledge, facilities, and equipment so that each apprentice can be successful and receive a Journey-worker certificate and NIMS (National Institute of Metalworking Skills) credentials in a specific skilled area of work providing they complete the program requirements.
