Become an apprentice

Apprenticeship is a great pathway to a satisfying career. It’s equivalent in time and academics to earning a bachelor’s degree, but you get paid while you learn and you don’t incur all the costs of attending college.

The first and most important step to becoming an apprentice is deciding which trade best aligns with your personality, skills and long-term goals. Then apply to that apprenticeship program.
