APPRENTICESHIPS

An apprenticeship provides a customized training program that meets the specific needs of your business. In developing the program, you work with SCTC to determine the skills you want your workers to have and then design the training to meet those needs. The classroom training is then reinforced through on-the-job learning where the apprentices are taught by an experienced mentor from your company. The end result is a highly skilled worker who is trained not only in their craft, but in your company’s culture.
