Designated Approver’s Weekly Update – November 1, 2021

By Melissa Paloma | Project Manager

Weekly Action Items

  • Meet with your CWNY Point Person
  • Reminder: Kick-off DA meeting tomorrow at 4:30pm!

As a reminder we will host our first DA meeting on November 2nd (virtually). In this meeting, we will preview lessons from the curriculum. The Ed team looks forward to recruitment and hosting some in-person pitching events!

The Ed team will provide a full update on apprentices and the vaccine/testing requirements per company in separate emails. Please be on the lookout for those update from your CWNY Ed team point person.


Your CWNY point person will reach out to set up 1-1 bi-weekly meetings to begin recruitment.

What to look forward to: in-person pitching, employer engagement events, and our WBL- curriculum that will be released for the Spring semester!

CDI Phase II completed and apprentices are working! Apprentices should expect to receive their stipend about 2-3 weeks after it is mailed out!

For those students who were hired August- September, there is a make-up CDI Phase I training that has 2-Fridays left in their training, on top of working M-Thursday! For more on CDI training, click here.
