Rich Nielsen, director of engineering for IMS Burke-Olson LLC, in Arlington Heights, IL, has a long history with TMA. He taught in the Apprentice Training program for 10 years a number of years ago, and has served on the Training Committee and on the Board of Directors as well. Traditionally, the TMA model is that the employer provides the hands-on training and TMA offers the related-theory training, Nielsen explained. At IMS Burke-Olson weve been training apprentices using TMA Apprentice Training for a long time.

IMS Burke-Olson has been a TMA member since 1955.
Like Martinez, Nielsen is grateful for the return of the TMA Apprentice Training program. The downturn really hit us between the eyes, and we called it off for a couple of years, he recalled. However, during this time we explored other options for delivering the material and drove our research into the online training movement, and that led us down a path toward some possibilities in the future. Starting this year, as we polled members, were expecting the training levels to increase.
Nielsen concurs that finding skilled employees is a challenge that is made more difficult by the lack of people being trained over the past few years. Theres a larger gap than ever in the pool of workers out there, Nielsen noted.
Nielsen added that the advantage of TMAs Apprentice Training program is that the instructors have experience in the trades. The instructors are people in the field and teach in the evening what they do during the day, he indicated. Thats always been a great strength of TMAs program versus community colleges where the instructor may not have the experience in what theyre teaching.
While TMA has a strong bench of quality instructors who have the hands-on experience in what they were teaching, these instructors have also had in-service training with educational professionals who taught them how to teach. We train tool and die makers and the educators train us in teaching, Nielsen added.
