Earn while learning new skills through real work experience. Apprenticeship programs combine paid employment with no cost training. Completing each year of training elevates an apprentices' hourly pay rate and their status within the skilled trade community. Upon completing the full apprenticeship program, an apprentice becomes a "Journeyman" or "Master" of the craft and is considered at the very top of the industry.
