Workforce Development

Sea-lect Plastics is one of WA state’s leading advocates for apprenticeship programs. Sea-lect Plastics is battling the skills gap with apprenticeships. The Sea-lect Plastics apprenticeship program began in 2013 when they had to replace their principal mold maker who was retiring.

They partnered with AJAC, the Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee to implement a program, where apprentices get on-the-job training while taking at least 540 hours of related supplemental instruction a year.

Sea-lect Plastics sees apprenticeships as important vehicles to satisfying, well-compensated careers for individuals, as well as essential to developing the workforce skills manufacturers require. Currently, 40% of Sea-lect Plastics employees are enrolled in four different apprenticeship programs.
