Apprenticeships combine a full-time job with training—and prepare workers to enter in-demand careers.

Apprenticeships provide affordable pathways to high-paying jobs and careers without the typical student debt associated with college.

Career seekers can find apprenticeships in industries such as information technology, finance and business, healthcare, hospitality, transportation, and manufacturing.

More than 90 percent of apprentices remain employed after completing their program, and their average starting wage is more than $60,000. Over their careers, apprentices earn $300,000 more than workers who did not complete an apprenticeship.

To find apprenticeship opportunities that match your interests and skills, visit the new Apprenticeship Finder on Apprenticeship.gov — a one-stop source to connect career seekers, employers, and education partners with apprenticeship resources.

Getting Started

An apprenticeship combines on-the-job training with related classroom instruction, all under the supervision of a journey-level professional. Apprentices get paid while they learn and develop knowledge, skills, and abilities in a new career field.

After completing a registered apprenticeship program, apprentices receive a professional credential that is recognized nationwide.

Apprenticeship is one of the best ways to get the experience and training you need to start your career. Often, starting an apprenticeship is similar to getting a job. You have to decide on a program you’re interested in, apply for the apprenticeship, interview with the program staff, and be accepted into the program. There are also recognized Apprenticeship Preparation Program with defined pathways to a registered apprenticeship.
