Apprenticeship: A Career Path Less Traveled


What is an apprentice?
An apprentice is someone 16 or older who is learning a career from a skilled worker and earning while they learn, all without student loan debt!


Why become an apprentice?
Apprenticeships offer the chance to gain skills that will lead to a higher salary and great job opportunities. As an apprentice, you are a full-time employee from DAY ONE, earning a paycheck while you learn!

Apprenticeships are available in a variety of occupations, including healthcare, internet technology, advanced manufacturing and construction.

During an apprenticeship, you will be trained on the job by an expert worker. You will also participate in classroom instruction that applies directly to your career.

Once you complete your apprenticeship, you will receive a certificate that is recognized nationally.
