Apprenticeships:
What is an apprenticeship…Go above and beyond classroom instruction with real-world training from local technical colleges and employers. Under the supervision of a qualified tradesperson, you'll get paid experience in your trade while taking courses that count toward an associate's degree. With a degree in hand and on-the-job experience under your belt, you'll have the skills and knowledge you need to succeed in your career.  See the apprenticeship PDF below for more information.
