RCA Students Begin German Apprenticeship at Georiga State CapitalRockdale Career Academy students, TJ Hayes, Toby Lanier, Stanley Odom, and Alex Spencer, visited the State Capitol today to officially become part of the GA CATT program. 

According to their website, The Georgia Consortium for Advanced Technical Training (GA CATT) is an innovative and industry-led approach to education. Benchmarked on the German Dual Education System, this program is an educational model developed together with technology leaders. GA CATT combines practice, theory and work to train a globally competitive workforce. Companies get a timed tested training program and access to a high quality candidate pool. Students profit from guaranteed employment for the time of their training, the opportunity to earn an Associate’s Degree with no debt to pay off afterwards, and a German DIHK certification. The German DIHK certification shows that its recipients are trained according to standards set by the German government. This certification demonstrates to companies that the apprentice was trained to internationally recognized standards and has been trained to adequately perform the skilled work needed in most manufacturing settings.

We are extremely excited for these boys to be able to participate in this amazing opportunity.
