Alabama Public Television Video: On The Job http://www.aptv.org/VideoRoom/nola.asp?NOLA1=OTJ Video episodes of On The Job from Alabama Public Television. Annie Girl Charter Saunders Yachtworks Bishop State - Diesel Tech http://www.aptv.org/VideoRoom/viewprogram.asp?FileID=1083 For most of us driving a car is pretty easy. But what about driving a boat? Better yet, what about driving a LARGE boat? The On the Job team wanted to find out what it takes to become a boat captain, so the crew traveled to Orange Beach, Alabama, and spent some time with Captain Mike Rowell, aboard his charter boat the "Annie Girl." No one wants to be "stuck" on the side of the road, or better yet in the middle of the water with a malfunctioned boat, so the OTJ team called up Saunders Yachtworks to get a better understanding of what diesel mechanics have to do everyday, "on the job." OTJ dropped in on Bishop State Community College's Diesel Technology program. Instructor H.P. Hill informed us that Diesel Mechanics with the proper education, and training, can have a very lucrative career. After reviewing the employment options available in the Gulf Coast, maybe becoming a boat captain, or a Diesel Mechanic, isn't such a bad idea after all...

After two plant expansions and with more than 22,000 direct and indirect jobs, MBUSI has grown to become Alabama's largest exporter of goods. But the company is not just focused on building cars, they're also focused on building the community through the MAP program. The MAP (Maintenance Apprenticeship Program) program at Mercedes Benz, in conjunction with AIDT(Alabama Industrial Development Training), is geared towards building students with the industrial skills that are necessary to thrive in today's workforce.

These units generally are involved with extreme pressure, and are used in a variety of ways ranging from generating power, providing heat, and processing and storing chemicals. The ON THE JOB team took a trip to Birmingham, and spent some time with some Boilermakers to get an understanding about what it takes to do this job. Iron Workers erect buildings, bridges, and have had a hand in building structures such as: The Golden Gate Bridge, The Sears Tower, and the St. Louis Arch, just to name a few. The ON THE JOB team wanted to know a little more about what iron worker's actually, "do." We caught up with a few in Birmingham, and spent some time with the Iron Workers out of the Local 92. While on our visit we learned that not only do Iron Worker's have a financially stable career, they also have an intensive apprenticeship program.
