CMC was invited to present during the Guam Registered Apprenticeship Industry Forum, held on November 17-18, 2016. CMC HR Director, Wayne Bigler, conducted the presentation and served as part of a panel discussion with other employers, on how registered apprenticeship has helped their respective company’s workforce. Mr. Bigler emphasized CMC’s leadership commitment on revitalizing ship repair as a core industry on Guam and committed to educating and developing the local workforce through its Apprenticeship Program. The forum proved successful on how the Apprenticeship Program creates a win-win situation for employers and the island community, as many leaders and business owners who were not aware of the benefits signed up for the program. Mr. Bigler also acknowledged his CMC team and encouraged for employers to approach the program collectively. CMC received a strong message of appreciation from the Director of Labor and has been asked to speak at future events.
