Apprenticeship Program

 

Apprenticeship is the process of learning a skilled trade through a combination of on-the-job training and related classroom education.  Apprentices are full time employees, who operate under the close supervision of a skilled worker on the job and take classroom instruction at night or on weekends.  The length of training varies from one to six years, depending on the occupation.

More than 100 apprenticeable occupations offer training through New York State Department of Labor Registered Apprenticeship programs.  For more information about apprenticeship training, visit the New York State Department of Labor apprenticeship page at:
