APPRENTICESHIPS

SKILLED TRADES apprenticeship OPPORTUNITIES — EARN WHILE YOU LEARN

One of the career paths is being part of an apprenticeship program designed to give a worker skills in a particular trade that are in high demand and appreciated by employers in Colorado and throughout the country.

Many Colorado construction contractors will sponsor their entry level employees after they complete an introductory phase to determine if the employee likes the construction industry; and is ready, willing and able to work during the day and commit to attending classes in the evenings. Most apprenticeships are completed within a 3 or 4 year period. The apprentice will participate in classroom sessions as well as work alongside a skilled tradesperson on their way to earning a license in the skilled trade they choose. 

The list below details the wide variety of formal apprenticeships and higher education programs that are offered in Colorado.
