Starting an Apprenticeship

What is an Apprentice?

  • Apprentices learn the skills of an occupation while earning a paycheck and completing on-the-job training combined with related instruction.

How Do I Get Started?

  • Apprenticeship Programs are run by different entities. Some individual companies runs internal apprenticeship programs and other times trade unions and employer associations sponsor apprenticeship programs and work with large employer groups.
  • The best method for getting started is to begin researching programs in occupations you are interested in pursuing. You can use this database of approved apprenticeship programs to find contact information for programs available in your area.
