Employee to Join PA's Apprenticeship Counsel

5/12/2014

FREEPORT, PA – Oberg Industries, a full-service contract manufacturer of precision metal components and assemblies, announced that Greg Chambers, Director of Corporate Compliance and Safety and Apprenticeship Program Leader for Oberg Industries, was recently commissioned by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett to serve on the Pennsylvania Apprenticeship and Training Council.

The council is made up of 11 representatives from each of the following sectors: employers, public, and labor. These council members are required to be fairly balanced in the points of view represented and functions performed. “Greg certainly has been a longtime advocate and supporter of apprenticeship training since being the coordinator and leader of Oberg’s world-renown apprenticeship training program for more than 20 years. He has been helping to establish standards for apprenticeships and develop curriculum and training programs through his liaison work at the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training with the US Department of Labor and leadership roles with NIMS (National Institute of Metalworking Skills), the NTMA (National Tooling and Machining Association), and the American Apprenticeship Roundtable,” commented Dave Bonvenuto, President and CEO of Oberg Industries.

“Greg brings a perfect blend of passion and knowledge of industry needs to promote apprenticeship education. We are proud of Greg and his efforts to improve metalworking training standards for manufacturing throughout our great state and our country,” said Mr. Bonvenuto. Greg Chambers also had the unique opportunity to recently greet and meet with President Obama and Vice President Biden and discuss many apprenticeship training initiatives when the President visited Pittsburgh in April of this year.

Mr. Chambers brings more than 25 years experience as an engineer and leader of apprenticeship development as well as export control, safety and environmental control to this position. Greg Chambers has a B.S. Degree in Chemical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and received his Journey-worker Certificate in Machining after graduating from the Oberg Apprenticeship Training Program.

During his tenure on the PA Apprenticeship and Training Council, Greg will represent apprentice and education needs of all manufacturers throughout Pennsylvania. According to the 2012-2013 PA Career Guide, nearly 170,000 individuals work in high demand manufacturing occupations throughout Pennsylvania earning average wages of $40,150 a year. The majority of these jobs do not require a college degree, but work related theory and on-the-job training.
