Injecting Quality Into Production: Excellence at Abbott Point of Care (2009)

Located in Ottawa, Abbott Point of Care (APOC) is a division of globally based Abbott Laboratories. APOC develops and makes products for rapid blood analysis.

Four hundred of APOC’s Ottawa-based employees must participate in a mandatory on-the-job microelectronics apprenticeship training program. Support is provided for employees who first need to upgrade their education to complete the mandatory program.

Participants range in age from 20 to 60 and come from diverse cultural and educational backgrounds.

All apprenticeship training is completed during work shifts, and classroom training takes place in four-hour time blocks once every two weeks over a three-year period. Training objectives include increasing literacy, numeracy and other essential skills; offering high school programming for those who need it; and advancing transferable skills.
