Earn While you Learn
Apprenticeship programs are like reverse tuition bills. Students don't pay for the classes they take. Instead, they get paid while they learn.

CCBC partners with union and non-union apprenticeship programs to combine on-the-job training and classroom instruction.

Apprentices work high-paying jobs in specialty programs like sheet metal, operating engineering, electrical, plumbing and steam fitting, carpentry and other occupations.

To see how you can get paid on your way to a solid career, contact Chris Chalker at 443-840-4422
