Apprenticeship Cleveland County
Apprenticeship Cleveland County is a combination of on-the-job training and practical classroom instruction that prepares participants for high-skilled careers with local industry partners. Apprenticeship programs are sponsored by a local employer where the Apprentice will benefit from paid employment and on-the-job training.
Upon successful completion the Apprentice qualifies for a nationally recognized certification as a “journey worker” in a skilled trade and an academic credential from Cleveland Community College. Apprentices also achieve a National Career Readiness Certificate, a nationally recognized portable work skills credential to add to their portfolio and resumé.
Benefits of Apprenticeship include:
- Paid employment during training with progressive wage increases
- Opportunity to learn skills needed by employers throughout the industry
- A more secure career and the ability to adapt to new job requirements
- Credit towards an AAS degree or Certificate for completion of apprenticeship program
Apprenticeship programs are industry-driven, structured training methods that allow employers to attract and develop new talent or use existing full-time employees to earn while they learn. There is no cost for employers to participate with existing employees or new hires that are selected by individual employers.
