job training Job programs need backup

Jobs and job training programs, to be successful, need to incorporate traditional apprenticeship and internship programs with government certification of training, updated to include computer programming, programming and operating computer numerically controlled equipment and three-dimensional printing.

Along with training programs should come pressure for employers to participate in training programs and to hire certified trained workers for jobs! Employers who deliberately hire uncertified workers with no intention of getting these workers into certification programs that will make them better, safer workers need to be made to realize that certification in approved training programs should reduce liabilities, lawsuits, and other problems.

Training programs will do no good without employers who are willing to hire properly certified workers and participate in proper training programs that offer workers the ability to carry certification from one job to the next.
