What is an Apprenticeship?

Consider an apprenticeship as an alternative to a traditional four-year degree. Apprenticeships offer supplemental classroom education tailored to the needs of employers, combined with 2,000 hours of on-the-job training. From day one, apprentices earn a salary, which increases as they gain more training and experience.
