Registered Apprenticeships

Program Description


Most apprenticeships are in building and construction trades, with others in manufacturing and public utilities. Each apprenticeship program varies in its course sequence, number of years, and number of training hours/year required for completion. Apprenticeship opportunities involve paid employment and structured education that will lead to higher salary, greater skill and the possibility of earning a degree.

Apprentices are selected by the apprenticeship sponsor (which might be a joint labor-management apprenticeship committee, an industry association, or an employer). When apprentices are accepted into the program, they begin taking classes through CCBC and working full-time under the supervision of a trained journeyperson. It is not necessary to be employed when applying; many programs will dispatch apprentices to a participating employer once they are selected for admission.

Program Outcomes


Successful Completion:

CCBC Credential:

Students will have access to a Continuing Education academic record (transcript).

Students will be awarded a Continuing Education Workforce Training Certificate.

 

External Credential:

Students will receive a journey certificate from the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.

Note: Many apprenticeship programs have additional certifications, such as OSHA 10 or 30, First Aid/CPR, and other trade-specific certifications. Some programs also require passing a state licensing exam, depending on the trade.

 

Certifying Organization:  Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (DLLR)
