About Apprenticeship

Apprenticeship combines structured, on-the-job training with classroom instruction. Apprentices learn both the theory and practice of a highly-skilled occupation in two to five years, getting paid for their time on the job and in the classroom. Wisconsin's technical colleges provide instruction for more than 40 apprenticeship programs in the industrial, construction and service industries, which helps to meet employer needs and allows students to earn whil they learn.

It Pays

The annual median salary for all apprentices completing instruction with a Wisconsin technical college in 2014-15 was $67,595.
