Who We Are
SCCAP is an autonomous sub-committee hosted by SpaceTEC Partners, Inc. (SpaceTEC), who also serves as fiscal administrator for SCCAP. In addition, SpaceTEC is an international-accredited certifying body for all branches of the Military and the Aerospace, Aviation, and Advanced Manufacturing industries.
SCCAP is an industry-driven apprenticeship program led by a consortium of advanced manufacturers in the Space, Aerospace, Aviation, and Defense industries, with a focus on implementing world-class apprenticeship programs in occupations that require higher levels of education to perform in today’s competitive advanced manufacturing environment.
Automated manufacturing processes including
CNC, mechatronics, robotics, additive
manufacturing, IT, Cybersecurity and other
cyber-physical environments related to globally
competitive Industry 4.0 technologies.
We believe that in order for our U.S. Space,
Aerospace, Aviation, and Defense industries to
maintain global competitiveness, it is critical that
apprenticeships and other work-based learning
programs are developed to adequately prepare
our local workforce ecosystem. The workforce
needs to achieve a higher level of proficiency in
advanced manufacturing skills which are required
in today’s highly competitive global economy.
