Apprenticeships are a great option for people who like to work with their hands and are ready to go to work. They combine classroom training (college credit courses) and paid on-the-job training and last one to five years. Apprentices are eligible for lower college tuition rates.
After successfully completing the program, apprentices earn a journeyworker-level certificate of completion from the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries Apprenticeship and Training Council. This certificate is one of the oldest and most highly portable industry credentials in use today.
