We are convinced that a well-rounded education alongside practical experience is the key to a sustainable and long-term career in our community.
To achieve that goal, we work closely with local industry and schools in Davidson and Davie Counties as well as Davidson-Davie Community College to build collaborative relationships.
DDAC (Davidson and Davie Apprenticeship Consortium) is an alliance of manufacturing companies in Davidson and Davie Counties aiming to provide bright futures for tomorrows’ talents.
An apprenticeship is a program that trains an individual to become a skilled tradesman in a particular field through on-the-job training and supervision of a trade professional. In addition to the hands-on technical work, the apprentice receives classroom instruction to learn the theoretical background.
