(Learning by Doing)

The concept of an apprenticeship has been around since the latter part of the Middle Ages, and it remains a viable form of training today. Essentially, an apprenticeship is a means of taking on an individual who will learn the skills and practices that are associated with a given career path. The apprentice is taken under the wing of an individual who is recognized as an expert practitioner of the craft, and over a period of years is schooled in all aspects of the career, until the apprentice is able to go out on his or her own and function effectively. Below, you will find opportunities to serve as an apprentice at the national and international level.
