Explore an Apprenticeship Program

 

U.S. companies are discovering that Registered Apprenticeship Programs offer a proven solution for recruiting, training and retaining world-class talent. Almost any occupation is apprenticeable!

Overseen by the U.S. Department of Labor (or a related state agency), an apprenticeship is a high-quality, work-based education and training program that allows employees to hit the career path running. In these paid positions, apprentices must work 40 hours a week and receive a minimum of 2,000 on-the-job training hours.

DCCCD has an ambitious goal of 50,000 apprentices by 2030.
