Apprenticeships are a structured way for a person to learn a trade or occupation typically over a 1-3 year time frame and lead to an industry-recognized credential. Apprenticeships are paid experiences, can sometimes qualify for college credit, and can lead to a full-time job. They are a great way to learn while being paid for a specific career.
