Become an Apprenticeship Employer

fMassBioEd has created two Apprenticeship programs, one for Biomanufacturing Technicians (BMTs) and one for Clinical Trial Associates (CTAs). These unique life sciences apprenticeships provide accelerated training for individuals to gain foundational knowledge and acquire industry recognized skills. Companies will have access to a pool of work-ready candidates with skills perfectly matched to employer needs. Individuals will have opportunities for new careers at sustainable wages.


Both programs share these essential features:

  • MassBioEd works with employers to determine applicant qualifications.
  • MassBioEd recruits and assesses prospective apprentices: then employer partners interview candidates and select participants they will bring on for apprenticeships
  • Selected candidates begin the program with a classroom based, industry specific curriculum
  • Curriculum is enhanced by soft skills training and general biotech industry overview
  • Apprentices transition into on-the-job training at partner companies at apprenticeship wages
  • When training is complete, apprentices are ready to move into full time, permanent employment

MassBioEd apprenticeships have been designed in close partnership with leading life science employers, universities and professional associations to be scalable across the industry and across the country. Two new apprenticeships will offer an accelerated training program for individuals to gain foundational knowledge, industry recognized skills and work experience.
