How an apprenticeship benefits you

From their first day of work, apprentices receive a paycheck and benefits.  Usually the salary increases as their training progresses. Apprentices complete a combination of job-related instruction and hands-on training at the job site leading to nationally-recognized, portable credentials.

Specific benefits include:

  • Hands-on career training: Apprentices receive practical on-the-job training in a wide variety of occupations and industries, such as health care, construction, information technology, transportation, energy, and advanced manufacturing.
  • An education: Apprentices receive training resulting in improved skills and competencies and in many cases earn college credit toward an associate’s or bachelor’s degree.
  • A career: Once the apprenticeship is complete, workers are on their way to a successful long-term career with a competitive salary and little to no educational debt.
  • National credentialing: When an apprentice graduates from a career training program, they earn a certified portable credential accepted by industries and employers across the U.S.
