Start an Apprenticeship Program

 

No, we’re not talking about reality TV or a medieval guild when we say “apprentice.” A growing number of American companies have discovered that registered apprenticeship programs offer a proven solution for recruiting, training and retaining world-class talent.

Overseen by the U.S. Department of Labor (or a related state agency), registered apprenticeships are high-quality, work-based education and training arrangements that must meet rigorous national standards. In these paid positions, apprentices must work 40 hours a week and receive a minimum of 2,000 on-the-job training hours.

El Centro College, North Lake College, Richland College and DCCCD’s District Office serve as the lead educational agency for several existing apprenticeship and journey worker programs, including:
