Industry Consortium for Advanced Technical Training (ICATT) is the leading apprenticeship program in the Midwest for high-tech manufacturers and companies with complex technologies or logistics. It is the only program fully benchmarked on the German Dual Education System – an approach recognized globally for its combination of company-specific knowledge, theory, and hands-on learning – resulting in highly-trained employees that position companies to embrace technical advances, keep pace with market demands, and harness growth opportunities.
The ICATT Apprenticeship Program was established by the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest. GACC Midwest supports German and American companies in transatlantic business. In addition, it manages, promotes, and oversees the ICATT Apprenticeship Program as it addresses the struggle to find and retain a loyal, highly-skilled, and technically advanced workforce in the United States.
