Are you interested in apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a structured system of training designed to prepare individuals for occupations in skilled trades and crafts. It combines on-the-job training under the supervision of experienced journey workers with related classroom instruction. The instruction usually takes place one to two nights per week, for about four to six hours per week. Most programs use local vocational schools or community colleges for their classroom instruction. Depending on the trade, the program can last from one to ten years, with the average program length being 4 years.
