Reid State Technical College announced Jan. 10 it has partnered with Pepsi Cola Bottling Co. of Atmore to offer an apprenticeship program to RSTC Industrial Electricity/Electronic students. 

The Pepsi apprenticeship is a competency based apprenticeship, registered through the Alabama Office of Apprenticeship.

The program was designed as a way for someone who was going to school to gain on-the job training while earning a paycheck, according to a release.

Program apprentices can also receive prior learning credit if an apprentice has previously been through Reid State’s Industrial Electricity Electronics program or another college’s program. 

“These apprenticeships help create tons of value for the apprentice and for the company they work for,” said RSTC Director of Workforce Development/Career Technical Education Instructor David Cole. 

The 2021 Pepsi Apprenticeship Program signees were James Walker, Foster Countryman and Christopher Conway.
