 What is Apprenticeship?

·        Apprenticeship is an education and training program for people who enjoy learning by doing and who want to work in the skilled trades

·        An apprentice is a person who is enrolled in a skilled trade for the purpose of learning the specific skills related to the profession

·        90% of apprenticeship training is hands-on, which employers provide at the workplace

·        10% of apprenticeship training is classroom instruction, which usually takes place at a community college or an approved training organizations

·        An apprenticeship takes from 2 to 5 years to complete, depending on the trade

·        The “apprentice” then receives a Certificate of Qualification or Certificate of Apprentice (depending on the trade), which indicates that he/she is now a skilled professional
