APPRENTICESHIP -
Alabama Community College System

WHAT IS AN APPRENTICESHIP?

“Apprenticeship” is a big word that basically means you split your time between training for a job at an actual company and inside a classroom. You spend a few days a week taking college classes in your local community college’s classroom. The other couple of days are spent working at a company with professional in the manufacturing field who train you to actually ‘do’ the job you learned about in class. Your classes could be paid for by the company and you get an actual paycheck!

Anyone looking to jumpstart a career or simply start something new after working in a different job will reap the benefits of an apprenticeship. 94% of apprentices who complete an apprenticeship keep their jobs. Not to mention the potential degrees and credentials you can earn while avoiding student debt. An apprenticeship is a smart choice whether you’re exiting high school or re-entering the workforce with several years of experience under your belt. Sign up today.
