Apprenticeships are a unique combination of classroom learning paired with on-the-job training that leads you to a trade credential. Once you have completed the necessary steps and receive your credential, you are then qualified to work in that skilled trade. Apprenticeship training can take place during high school or after you graduate.
Most of the training time is spent working so the classroom time is limited – which means you’re earning money during the process! Typically, you will work for a year and then transition to studying in-class for up to 12 weeks, either full-time or part-time. Apprenticeships take between two to five years to complete.
The best part about the apprenticeship process is that you learn from top professionals along the way so you’re gaining from their years of wisdom and experience plus you have the addition of your in-class learning taking place at a college or accredited training institution.
