How Does Apprenticeship Work?
- Apprenticeship is a partnership between:
- An employer who offers on-the-job training / apprenticeship position
- The apprentice who agrees to work for the employer
- A technical college or training group who offers the related instruction
- The State of Wisconsin, Department of Workforce Development, Bureau of Apprenticeship and Standards
- The apprentice works with a variety of skilled workers for a specified number of year/hours.
- Each apprentice is required to take designated related instruction throughout their apprenticeship, usually provided through the technical college. Typically, apprentices attend school for eight hours every other week (72-hours per semester) and receive a normal hourly salary while attending class.
- Apprenticeship training may also require additional courses, usually offered on evenings or weekends.
