Career Vocational Training:

●      Apprenticeships:Apprenticeships combine on-the-job training with classroom instruction, and typically take two to four years to complete. Competition for available slots is often fierce because apprentices pay nothing for their education and are actually paid for the hours they spend learning on the job. In addition, apprentices typically command relatively high salaries when they become journey workers.


Good resources to locate an open apprenticeship program include networking with people you know who work in an apprentice trade, contacting Lane Community College Apprenticeship Training Program, checking the Oregon State Apprenticeship & Training website, calling trade union offices, and contacting related professional associations.


Successfully completing basic classes in English, math, and science is considered essential for all applicants to apprenticeship programs, and most apprenticeships require a high school diploma or GED. In addition, taking special interest classes may help demonstrate an early aptitude, skills development, and improve your standing in the application process.
