What is an Apprenticeship

An apprenticeship program trains you to become skilled in a trade or profession. Apprenticeship training typically combines classroom learning with hands-on work. Community colleges, technical training schools, and even employers provide these job-related educational courses.  



An apprenticeship offers several notable advantages in addition to getting paid and on-the-job training. Apprentices also receive classroom instruction, mentorship with an experienced professional, and credentials upon program completion. 



Because apprenticeships are considered full-time work, you get paid! According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the average starting wage for a new apprentice is $15 an hour. This “learn while you earn” model increases both the skills and salary as they gain experience. 



Apprenticeships are common in skilled trades like carpentry, plumbing, electrical, hairstyling, hospitality, transportation, and manufacturing. But these programs are also available in professionalized industries such as healthcare, finance, business, and information technology.
