Apprenticeships

An apprenticeship is a system for training a new generation of practitioners of a trade or profession with on-the-job training and often some accompanying study. Apprenticeships can also enable practitioners to gain a license to practice in a regulated profession. Upon completion of classroom training, apprentices will be placed with local employers and assigned an on-the-job mentor to hone and perfect their new skills. Below are Apprenticeships offered:

 

Information Technology

Construction

 

Employers

If you are an employer, benefits of participating in an apprenticeship program include:

  • Timely training in specific knowledge that your company needs
  • Reduced turnover - more than 90% of apprentices stay with their employer beyond their apprenticeship experience
  • Lowers your cost for recruitment and training
  • Results in higher productivity
  • Develops highly skilled employees - your company provides guidance and mentors so apprentices learn exactly how you want the job done
