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.
