Benefits of an Apprenticeship

  • Apprenticeships enable you to start working and earn a wage while you learn key skills and gain qualifications to meet industry standards.
  • A paycheck from your first work day will increase as you learn new skills.
  • Once the apprenticeship is complete, you are on your way to a successful long-term career with a competitive salary and little or no educational debt.
