Learn about the apprenticeship opportunities available at HCC. You can get job training while earning a good income and receive the classroom instruction you need to succeed.
What Are Apprenticeships?
An apprenticeship is a work-and-learn experience which connects employers with students to combine classroom instruction with on-the-job experience and mentoring by experts in the field.
Apprenticeships have traditionally been exclusively for careers in the trades, but now apprenticeships can be for any career path! Multiple high-demand fields are open for apprenticeship opportunities: healthcare, manufacturing, business, diesel technology, IT and more!
How do apprenticeship programs work?
Employers, employer groups, and trade associations sponsor apprenticeship programs. The employers provide the on-the-job training while partnering with HCC to deliver the classroom instruction.
Classroom work is completed at the same time apprentices are actually working in the
field. This allows them to immediately apply the knowledge gained in the classroom
to a real-world setting.
Programs range from one to six years and are open to people of all educational levels. Upon completion of the program, students receive a nationally-recognized industry credential validating their proficiency.
As employees of the companies that sponsor their apprenticeship, apprentices receive incremental raises and in many cases, company benefits.
