Apprenticeship is an Earn & Learn model of training where employers structure a career pathway by combining an educational track alongside paid on-the-job training. Apprentices agree to a duration of apprenticeship and a skills development path. In return, apprentices are awarded with regular salary increases throughout their program and an industry recognized certification upon completion.
In apprenticeship, both career seekers and employers benefit. Career seekers are provided with clear and directed pathways to lucrative opportunities and employers have an internal method to perpetuate skill development and increase the pool of qualified individuals.
Norco College works to increase apprenticeship opportunities in the Inland Empire region by providing guidance and educational support to employers, partnering with regional apprenticeship programs, and assisting career seekers in starting apprenticeships in high-demand occupations.
