How To Apply to Machinist Apprenticeship


For machinist apprenticeships, an applicant must find an apprenticeship with a sponsoring employer on his or her own (similar to looking for a job). Once the applicant has found a position, the employer starts the apprenticeship registration process by contacting a Bureau of Apprenticeship Standards (BAS) Representative. If your employer is in Dane or Rock counties, contact BAS Representative Mary Pierce at (608) 246-7900. If your employer is in another county in the Madison College district, contact Debbie Schanke at (608) 246-3887.
