GMCA is licensed by State of Michigan as a Proprietary School authorized to conduct postsecondary education and endorsed by the Department of Labor/Office of Apprenticeship.

Skilled Trades training has benefited me by opening up opportunities at different companies that wouldn’t even take a second look if I hadn’t had a formal, post-secondary education. It gives me a leg up on anyone who just has a high school diploma.
