Alan’s Story

Reinforcing On-The-Job Training with Coursework

Alan McFadden is currently an apprentice supervisor at Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH). He has worked at JHH for more than twelve years, working his way from his first position as a floor technician to a variety of other jobs. He moved to the Environmental Care Services department as an EVC instructor and is now a supervisor trainee II.

Alan completed his high school education from Woodlawn High School and attended Coppin State University. While he worked in many fields before arriving at JHH, he is particularly proud of his accomplishments during his time at the hospital.

“I have benefitted greatly from my time at the apprenticeship program,” he explains. “I developed the skills I needed and trained on the job to understand the role of supervisor.” Alan has also learned from weekend coursework, which allowed him review and to refresh key components of the position.

“I am excited to complete the program and move forward in my career,” he says.

We commend Alan and the 80+ BACH participants who have gone through apprenticeship programs for Central Sterile Processing Technician, Environmental Care Supervisor, Licensed Practical Nurse, Medical Assistant, and Surgical Technologist.
