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.
