Become an Apprentice
Earn while you learn.
Whether you’ve always wanted to work in healthcare or are simply passionate about finding a reliable, long-term career you can be proud of, the Colorado Collegiate Apprenticeship Program is your next step.
Traditional postsecondary education isn’t always a possibility for everyone.
Instead, our proven curriculum combines tailored, career-specific classroom & virtual learning with on-site, real-world training to speed up learning and match apprentices with a rewarding career in a variety of specialized fields. And best of all, you get paid while you learn, and you graduate from the program with an industry level credential that makes you workforce ready.
Apprenticeship Works for You
- Earn while you learn, receiving hourly pay for the time you spend training with wage increases as you go.
- Since our program is federally funded, services such as childcare, book reimbursement, or travel expenses may be available directly to you.
- Because you’ll be taught specific procedures and protocols, you’ll graduate with the credentials you need to immediately get to work.
- 94% of those who complete their apprenticeship are hired by their apprenticeship employer*
- And, perhaps best of all, you have a job from day one.
