In collaboration with our dedicated employers and partners, SCAN-CA proudly unveiled California’s pioneering Registered Apprenticeship Program for the semiconductor industry in the fall of 2023.

The name of this unique partnership in Santa Clara, CA is called Semiconductor and Nanotechnology Apprenticeship Pioneers (SNAP). This initiative aims to bridge the gap between education and industry by offering hands-on training in emerging fields such as advanced manufacturing. Our first cohort launched in the fall of 2023, and due to industry needs, we’re increasing our effort to recruit for the second cohort starting in the spring of 2024.

SEMI and partners will be presenting at the CCCAOE Spring Conference in April 2024 to discuss how this workforce program has so far succeeded.

We’re honored to be the first to receive approval from the U.S. Department of Labor and CA Division of Apprenticeship Standards for this program in California. Through SCAN, employers are offering apprentices a golden opportunity to join the industry, supported with comprehensive on-the-job training and specialized educational courses. We invite more employers to join this groundbreaking initiative.
