What is Apprenticeship?
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. Apprentices who successfully complete the prescribed number of hours of training in an apprenticeship program become certified skilled craft workers. The Arkansas AGC program is registered with the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training of the U.S. Department of Labor.
What does Apprenticeship offer?
