Apprenticeship Program

The Manufacturing Sector Development Program (MSDP) in conjunction with local employers offers apprenticeships to current students.  The objective of the Apprentice Program is to train individuals in the field of Industrial Maintenance Electrical in all phases of the industry through a well-developed, on-the-job and instructional program.

Recognizing the need for skilled construction craftsmen in Eddy, Chaves, and Lea Counties, the Carlsbad Community Development Corporation established the Multi-trade Apprenticeship Standards to be used by all of its members, including contractors, manufacturers and businesses that utilize people in occupations that can be learned through apprenticeship and wish to employ apprentices.  For additional information contact the MSDP Department at New Mexico State University Carlsbad, room 227B or call (575) 234-9271.
