Apprenticeships provide paid, on-the-job training combined with coursework to build expertise in a trade or profession. Each company's apprenticeship program is different, but programs typically last between 2-5 years and apprentices often earn an Associate's Degree and Journeyman's Certificate. Some major benefits of apprenticeships are that apprentices become qualified for gainful careers and often hired as permanent employees...WITH NO COLLEGE DEBT!
CTE partners with the companies and associations below to connect DPS students to their apprenticeship programs. Other companies not listed here may also offer apprenticeships; job websites such as www.indeed.com are one resource for finding out about additional opportunities.
