About the Program
This unique program is registered with the state as an apprenticeship and provides candidates an alternative pathway into the life sciences industry. MassBioEd has focused on recruiting candidates from under-represented groups in the industry as well as unemployed and under-employed individuals. Through accelerated training, apprentices will gain foundational knowledge, industry-recognized skills, and work experience, providing them with career opportunities at sustainable wages. MassBioEd chose to target Biomanufacturing Technicians and Clinical Trial Associates for the first year of the apprenticeship program because of high employer demand for these occupations.
