“The ICATT Apprenticeship Program is an outstanding opportunity for younger generations. ICATT gave my son a sense of purpose and a direction in his life he’s excited about. He’s become a much more mature person. He works hard because he doesn’t want to let the company down; he even cares about grades more because they matter to the company, not just his mom and dad.”
Cathy Splett, Mother of an Apprentice
“Our two graduates from the ICATT Apprenticeship Program are doing so well. It is an absolute pleasure to see them developing and taking on more responsibilities in our company.”
“The combination of work experience and the college education initially piqued my interest. After researching the program, I became extremely interested after realizing the investment the company would be making in me: hands-on experience, associate degree and pay. I was sold!”
Alexis Ojeda | Apprentice
