Apprenticeships are a proven training method benefitting both job seekers and businesses. They are gaining momentum as a cost-effective alternative or addition to the college track.

 

Through mentorship and technical instruction, job seekers receive on-the-job training to learn necessary skills while earning a paycheck. Employers train and retain talent to their own standards. Today, apprenticeships are expanding across both traditional and non-traditional industries such as information technology, advanced manufacturing, healthcare, construction, hospitality, and trade and logistics.
