Earn While Your Learn

Apprenticeships are formal employment programs that train you to do a specific job. Unlike internships, apprenticeships employ people who already know which career path they wish to follow. They provide students an opportunity to try out a job, usually with an experienced professional in the field to act as a mentor. They often are associated with vocational training, where a more experienced tradesman or journeyman models behavior, the apprentice attempts to follow the model, and the journeyman provides feedback.

Apprenticeship programs are sponsored by employers, labor unions and associations. Programs last between one and six years and provide wage increases as you gain work experience. At the end of your apprenticeship, you will have a formal qualification and the skills needed to work in your chosen field. Minimum qualifications must be met to apply.
