What is an Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeship is a training program where you earn wages while you learn a skilled profession. Apprentice occupations may be found in construction, plumbing, electrical, healthcare, culinary arts and others.
Similar to a college education, it takes several years to become fully trained in the occupation you choose. Unlike college, as an apprentice, you earn while you learn. Once you have mastered the trade, you will receive the same wages as the skilled worker, but without the college debt!
To become an apprentice, you must be at least 16 years old, and you will complete one to six years of paid, supervised, work based training and technical instruction to become certified in the profession of your choice. The training depends on the occupation you choose. You are paid while you train and there is no cost to you for the training.
