What is an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeship is an earn-while-you-learn method of starting and growing into a career.
An apprentice works under a journeyman to
learn a trade while on the job and getting paid. This is combined with related classroom instruction. Apprenticeships can take anywhere from one-to-five years to complete depending
on the trade and the prior experience of each individual apprentice.
