What is apprenticeship?
Apprenticeship, to put it simply, is an opportunity to earn while you learn. If you want a career in a skilled trade, apprenticeship is the best way to get there. You'll combine on–the–job training with on–campus learning so you'll have the best of both worlds when it comes to learning the skills you need to get ahead. And you earn a paycheck while you learn those skills.
