Industry Consortium for Advanced Technical Training (ICATT), the leading apprenticeship program in the Midwest for high-tech manufacturers and companies with complex technologies or logistics, expands its college base to twelve colleges and welcomes Richard J. Daley College to their network.

Richard J. Daley College, located in Chicago, enhances the opportunity to offer apprenticeships at local high-tech manufacturing companies in fields such as mechatronics and CNC machining. By joining the ICATT Apprenticeship Program, Chicago high -tech manufacturing companies will be able to develop a workforce development strategy that provides a pipeline of skilled talent over time.

“Richard J. Daley College and City Colleges of Chicago are excited to now be a part of the ICATT network in partnership with the German American Chamber of Commerce and the Illinois Manufacturers Association,” said Daley Dean, David Girzades. “Manufacturers we speak with frequently express their urgent need for a trained workforce and this partnership will help Chicago manufacturers remain an economic engine for this region.”

“We are pleased to expand our network of community colleges to Richard J. Daley College,” says Mario Kratsch, Head of the ICATT Apprenticeship Program. “The expansion of the program now provides companies and apprentices on the south and southwest regions of Chicago a closer alternative for the classroom portion of the apprenticeship. We are proud to have them part of the ICATT Apprenticeship Program.”
