What is an Apprenticeship and Why Should You Consider this Career Option?

The United States Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration defines apprenticeship as “a combination of on-the-job training and related classroom instruction in which workers learn the practical and theoretical aspects of a highly skilled occupation.”

The word practical would imply the “hand-on” learning of the trade, whereas the “theoretical aspects” could be defined as learning the why and the how of the trade combining your classroom work in science, technology, and mathematics.

These are three important reasons that you should consider going into an apprenticeship:

  • Completing an approved apprenticeship program (or apprenticing under a Licensed Master) is the only way that you are able to become licensed in most states.
  • An apprenticeship offers you the opportunity to learn all of the aspects of a trade and have the guidance of an expert in the field.
  • By completing the apprenticeship program and then passing the examination, you will have a greater than average chance of earning a salary comparable to and the possibility higher than those of college graduates.
