Anton Paar USA Inc. announces Apprenticeship Program for rising seniors in STEM fields

Anton Paar USA will be providing apprentices with classroom instruction as a 3 year apprenticeship program aimed at developing and advancing job-related skills. Through a partnership with John Tyler Community College, students participating in the program will help advance the fields of engineering for instrumented manufacturing technologies, and help support Anton Paar’s global mission to provide support for analytical instruments used in research and development, and quality control worldwide.

After the 3 year apprenticeship program and completion of an Associates Degree from John Tyler Community College, apprentices will have the ability to move into a role at Anton Paar regional offices in either Virginia, Illinois, Texas, or California. After developing in these initial roles, growth and mobility within the company will present the opportunity for apprentices to begin more advanced roles. Apprentices will be compensated fairly during the program, with tuition paid while attending John Tyler Community College, and competitive pay after completion of the program and accepting a full time position with the company. Apprentices will also have the opportunity to continue their education towards a Bachelor‘s Degree.

“Peter Drucker famously said that‚ the best way to predict the future is to create it,‘ and this could not be more appropriate as it pertains to our new apprenticeship program, said Anton Paar USA CEO Reinhard Eberl. “I am very excited to be offering this program. For decades, apprentices have been crucial to our workforce development in Europe and we are looking forward to implement the same strategy here in the US.”

Joe Harris, Vice President for Technical Services at Anton Paar USA said, “As someone who has been with Anton Paar for 20 years and followed a similar career journey here, I am excited we are offering this apprenticeship program to give outstanding students a chance to start their career with a great organization.”

The Apprenticeship Program Open House will be held at the Anton Paar USA Offices in Ashland, Virginia on Wednesday, January 15th, from 6:30pm-8:30pm. To register for this event, please visit
