WHAT IS AN APPRENTICESHIP?

“Apprenticeship” is a big word that basically means you split your time between training for a job at an actual company and inside a classroom. You spend a few days a week taking college classes in your local community college’s classroom. The other couple of days are spent working at a company with professional in the manufacturing field who train you to actually ‘do’ the job you learned about in class. Your classes could be paid for by the company and you get an actual paycheck!
