occupationally related degree program.
How do you apply?
Each student works in partnership with an employer-identified mentor, specialized classroom instructor and high school apprenticeship coordinator to receive the best skills and knowledge possible. The apprenticeship requires that students work a minimum of 450 hours to complete a one-year apprenticeship and 900 hours to complete a two-year program.
Upon successful completion of the apprenticeship, students are awarded a Certificate of Occupational Proficiency from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development. Graduates may be eligible to receive advanced standing and/or transcripted credit at a local technical college or credit toward the admission requirements for the University of Wisconsin system (in selected programs).
