Apprenti Cincinnati Celebrates Milestone for TQL Employees

Apprenti Cincinnati is proud to celebrate the 10 .NET software developer apprentices that recently graduated from related instruction and kick off on-the-job training at Total Quality Logistics (TQL) in August. These employees participated in TQL’s inaugural incumbent worker training where employees applied for limited spots to reskill as a software developer from their current role. Professionals ranged from financial analysts, learning and development managers, and sales assistants. They completed a rigorous 11 week bootcamp delivered by Chamber member MAX Technical Training. Together MAX and Apprenti Cincinnati were able to collaborate with TQL leadership to not only customize the curriculum, but also leverage TechCred and State of Ohio apprenticeship funding to support future cohorts. See pictures from graduation here. 

Apprenti Cincinnati seeks to eliminate bias in the hiring process and facilitate hires based upon aptitude rather than background. Candidates are put through a multi-step interviewing process prior to meeting with employers for roles ranging from software developers to cybersecurity analysts and IT business analysts. Employers are able select from six different training partners including MAX Tech, Tech Elevator, Kable Academy, Per Scholas, University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati State.

As we look ahead to the fall, Apprenti is collaborating with new and existing partners on a variety of roles and hopes to kickoff the first ever UI/UX design apprenticeship later this year. Employers are also needed to help us build a career map for local high school talent as we partner with INTERalliance on a framework for pre-apprenticeship IT roles.
