What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships offer professional training through a combination of on-the-job training and formal education that results in a national credential. The employee is paid while they are trained and attend related courses through their program, and the employer receives a specially trained and committed employee. Apprenticeship programs create alternative pathways into careers for young adults.
