More apprentices needed to fill skills gap

Randy Way, associate dean of applied science, engineering and technology, spoke with WKOW Channel 27 this week about the need for more apprentices to meet industry demand for skilled employees. Madison College offers 19 different apprenticeship programs covering a wide variety of skills training.

Apprenticeships are training programs that combine structured on-the-job training with related classroom instruction. Apprentices are sponsored by employers, employer associations or labor/management groups, and they receive a regular wage during training.

Applying to an apprenticeship program is different than applying for a degree program. The process is similar to applying for a job. You may be asked to fill out an application, complete apprenticeship testing and/or take an aptitude test, and interview for the position.
