What is a Registered Pre-apprenticeship Program?

A Registered Pre-apprenticeship program is designed to prepare and support individuals to take their next steps toward entering a career field without being required to pursue advanced higher level education in order to gain skills and qualifications to compete in the job market for in-demand positions. Our Registered Pre-apprenticeship program provides our Summer Apprentices with confidence in their on-the-job learned skills to take on their next step, professionally or academically. Individuals are prepared to compete more effectively for Registered Apprenticeship placements and discerning academic programs through the demonstration of applicable project work deliverables and artifacts showcasing in-demand, marketable skills.
