Benefits of a Pre-Apprenticeship

No experience? No problem. Pre-Apprenticeship programs are a great way to gain experience, build credentials, and prepare you with the skills to succeed in your chosen trade. 

An approved training curriculum. Learn fundamental skills specific to your industry to help you feel ready for an apprenticeship. Examples include basic hand tool and equipment operation, math and measuring, workplace harassment and discrimination training, and onsite safety.

Educational and pre-vocational services. Sharpen your math skills. Master the art of blueprint reading. Gain access to support services like transportation support, clothing and work boot supply, tools, access to childcare, and more.

Hands-on training. As an apprentice, you’ll be on the ground getting experience from skilled mentors in your field. A Pre-Apprenticeship prepares you for the next step in your career with a variety of experiences including simulated labs, field trips, and guest speakers.
