Why Consider an Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeship is an earn-to-learn model, meaning you collect a paycheck while learning from the pros, and you will walk away with the skills and credentials that employers value. Think of apprenticeships as an alternative to a traditional four-year degree without the student loan debt. Nationally, 93% of apprentices who complete an apprenticeship retain employment, with an average annual salary of $77,000.
