Skilled Trade Jobs Are In Demand. Begin Your Career In A High Growth Industry.


Apprenticeships combine a full-time job with training—and prepare workers to enter in-demand careers.

The manufacturing sector is rapidly growing and employers need workers with the right skills. If you enjoy working with your hands and are eager to learn new skills, an apprenticeship in manufacturing can kickstart your career!  ApprenticeshipWorks help young people ages 16 to 24 improve the quality of their lives through career technical and academic training.

Why An Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeship programs provide a non-traditional pathway to a career in a skilled trade at minimal expense. You actually earn while you learn. Apprentices perform real work on real construction projects – hands on work. You can avoid thousands of dollars in college loans, work and earn a paycheck during training. Apprentices are paid on a graduated scale as their skill and experience increases.
