MPCA has become a registered intermediary with the DOL for dental assistants, and soon for MAs and CHWs. MPCA helps Michigan CHCs offer registered apprenticeship programs by providing program administration services for the centers, making it less of a burden for CHCs to offer and run apprenticeship programs. MPCA's goal is to increase the number of dental assistants practicing in CHCs.
