Make your education work for you.
Colorado is building a new pathway toward career-focused higher education. An apprenticeship is an opportunity to receive hands-on career training, an education and a paycheck. We’re focused on building pathways in critical healthcare fields.
Get started today with one of our no, or low-cost programs at a Colorado community college in your area and start earning while you learn.
We are committed to:
- Paving a more attainable, affordable, and innovative path toward successful careers.
- Bringing students directly into their careers, while providing them with the foundational classroom learning.
- Diversifying from traditional programming like internships and degree programs.
How It’s Done
Our registered apprenticeship programs streamline the way we recruit and train qualified individuals for successful careers.
This is done in partnership with the Colorado Community College System, committed business partners, and institutions of higher education, who work together to create a curriculum of healthcare courses that:
- Meets the needs of today’s businesses
- Provides students with a flexible training opportunity and national industry-recognized certification upon graduation
The Colorado Collegiate Apprenticeship Program is matching motivated individuals looking for a stable, practical, and exciting career path with healthcare companies of all sizes who believe that the right people can reshape the workforce of the future.
If you’re looking for a proven pathway to a lucrative and fulfilling career, you’ve come to the right place.

“Learning and working right off the bat is what stood out most to me about this program. I was able to start making a difference in my community immediately. Previously I worked in the restaurant industry. Now, interacting with patients and making a difference, I am happy! I look forward to going to work and seeing what the next day will hold.”

“The Centura Medical Assistant Apprenticeship program was a great experience. The ACC instructors were very knowledgeable and invested in the students. I learned a lot in a short time. Working in the clinic was great. The clinic preceptors were very helpful and encouraging in helping me learn and practice my skills. I would highly recommend this program!”

“This program has meant a lot for me, as I want to eventually become a nurse. Since I have a CNA and now am an MA apprentice, this has helped tremendously. I highly recommend this program to anyone who works for Centura because it was an eye-opener for me.”

“My experience in the Medical Assistant Apprenticeship program was nothing but pleasure! The program taught me how to organize my day, find perfect life-work-school balance, concentrate, get things done in as little time as possible, and how to not give up. This MA apprenticeship should be implemented nationwide because it is a fantastic experience.”

“At the age of 58, I was displaced and began looking toward a new career. I learned more than I ever knew was possible in the Medical Apprentice program sponsored by HealthONE in conjunction with the Arapahoe County Workforce Center and Arapahoe Community College—a totally new field! Clinicals were interesting and fulfilling. My full-time position started during the pandemic.”
