Earn While You Learn

Apprenticeships are a great option for people who like to work with their hands and are ready to go to work. They combine classroom training (college credit courses) and paid on-the-job training and last one to five years. Apprentices are eligible for lower college tuition rates.

After successfully completing the program, apprentices earn a journeyworker-level certificate of completion from the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries Apprenticeship and Training Council. This certificate is one of the oldest and most highly portable industry credentials in use today. 

Learn at Your Local Community or Technical College

Apprentices can learn their trade and earn college credit through related supplemental instruction (RSI). To find out more, check out the Washington state community and technical colleges with affiliated apprenticeship programs:
