Together with area employers and a panel of past graduates of the program, OYAP is offering a Parent-Student Information Night to provide learning about careers in precision metal cutting and specifically about the OYAP PMC Program which can include a Level 01 429A General Machinist apprenticeship class at college, spring of 2021.
