Apprenticeship Information

What Are Apprenticeships?

An apprenticeship is an industry-driven, paid position focused on developing skills. Apprentices get paid work experience, classroom instruction, and a portable, nationally-recognized credential. Employers can develop and prepare their future workforce.

Apprenticeship programs are for ambitious people of all ages. People who want to earn a salary while they learn, gaining real skills and knowledge.

The Apprenticeship program offers employers: 

  • the opportunity to strengthen and build their workforce
  • highly skilled quality talent, tailored to meet their needs
