Launched in the fall of 2016, the Port Covington Manufacturing Bootcamp is a first-of-its-kind workforce development pre-apprenticeship program. It was created to teach Baltimore-area residents a broad range of skills and offer exposure to building trades, with the goal of better equipping participants to explore manufacturing job opportunities. The Port Covington Manufacturing Bootcamp is one of many programs that will ensure that the economic success of Port Covington is share by Baltimore’s residents and workers. The six-week program requires participants to take classes four days a week at The Foundery, located at City Garage in Port Covington. Classes focus on a wide variety of skills, including woodworking, welding, CNC (computer numerically controlled) machinery, textiles, 3D printing, and more.
