Become An Apprentice

Partner with an employer to complete an apprenticeship. You'll agree to work for an employer who offers paid on-the-job training and complete required education. Apprenticeships often take several years to complete and are based on hours earned on the job and in the classroom. Choose from apprenticeships in plumbing, carpentry, or electrical and instrumentation, or continue your education with the Technical Studies - Journey Worker associate's degree.
