16 Enter International Paper Apprenticeship Program
International Paper Riverdale Mill is partnering with Apprenticeship Alabama and is preparing its next group of Maintenance Journeyman.
Sixteen people joined the mill’s maintenance department last week. Nine of them are general mechanical maintenance and the other seven are electrical and instrumentation maintenance. Over the next four years, all 16 will be working to earn their Department of Labor Journeyman’s certificates — the highest level of licensing for the professional trade.
Individuals joining the Riverdale Maintenance program this week include Jared Chandler, Michael Green, Samuel Henderson, Jason Higginbotham, Clay Jones, Greg Lenoir, Brandon Mathis, Brandon O’Dell and Ronnie Williams in general mechanical maintenance and Aaron Adams, Eric Chavers, Patrick Johnson, Jeremy Lawrence, Tyler McLean, Hunter Smedley and Jonathan Webb in electrical and instrumentation maintenance.
