New Mexico TechWorks and Community Learning Network are teaming with CNM~CNM Ingenuity to expand the NM-ITAP program in Northern New Mexico and help Employers find and hire IT Apprentices. Hear from Program Director Sue Buffington at the Regional Tech Exchange Meeting Tuesday night, September 25 at the Violet Crown Cinema in Santa Fe from 5:30-7pm..
"The NM-ITAP Program will help:
Employers can hire two types of apprentices, a new hire who has no previous or current association with the company or current employees wishing to skill up beyond their current expertise.
Whether you have an established registered apprenticeship program or would like to start on-boarding apprentices, NMITAP staff will assist you through every step to ensure the successful training and skill advancement of applicants and existing employees.
Submit an inquiry form and a staff member from NMITAP will contact you to discuss the process.
The Department of Labor grant also offers special financial incentives for hiring apprentices."

"MSL joins universities and national labs for microgrid focus The National Science Foundation has awarded $20 million to a consortium of research institutions to develop the New Mexico SMART Grid Center. With local cost-share, total funding for the five-year program is $24 million. The consortium, comprised of the University of New Mexico, New Mexico State University, and New Mexico Tech, with Sandia National Laboratories, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the Microgrid Systems Laboratory, will work toward modernizing the nation’s electric grid to become SMART (Sustainable, Modular, Adaptive, Resilient, and Transactive).
More than 40 researchers (including new hires) will be involved across all institutions and activities. The research will focus on decentralized architectures, featuring microgrids at the utility distribution feeder level; associated networking, communications, data analytics and decision support; and economics and consumer behavior. In addition, MSL Member Santa Fe Community College will create related workforce training programs (LANL, SNL, and UNM are also MSL consortium Members), and will hire a full-time faculty in this area. Industry and utility partners include Siemens and Public Service Company of NM (PNM). New Mexico EPSCoR led the successful proposal effort, and will act as Project Director. MSL, which made significant contributions to developing the NM SMART Grid Center vision and approach, serves on the project’s Management Team, on two research teams (Systems Architecture, and Testing and Deployment), as an advisor on technology commercialization and innovation, and as coordinator of the SFCC workforce program. As stated in the project’s Strategic Plan, “MSL is a key collaborator that is a hub of microgrid collaborative activity with industry.” The Center is envisioned as continuing beyond the five-year grant period, and will be a focus of MSL’s research program within its full RIDE scope (Research, Innovation, Demonstration, and Education)"
