Lockheed Martin apprenticeship program in Courtland preps students for careers

COURTLAND, Alabama — Perla Chavez and Makayla Chambers took different paths to completing Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Manufacturing Technician Apprenticeship Program (AMTAP) in Lawrence County.

Chavez is a recent high school graduate and “techie” who started taking part in robotics and rocketry competitions in middle school. Chambers was a full-time art student pursuing a graphic design degree who worked delivering pizzas.

Both, however, had a common goal – to find a rewarding career doing something they feel passionate about. They decided to learn how to build spacecraft components.

Earlier this month, they joined two other classmates at their AMTAP cohort graduation, ready to start working as full-time technicians at Lockheed Martin’s Courtland facility.
