What Makes an Apprenticeship Different?

Different than internships and other training programs, apprenticeships are specially designed programs that include five core elements.

1. Paid Employment

Students are paid to learn with guaranteed wage increases as they hone their skills.

2. On-the-Job Learning

Students gain real-world experience with customized, structured work-based learning.

3. FRCC-Provided Instruction

On-the-job skills are enhanced with classroom and laboratory instruction, which provides college credit

4. Mentorship

Apprenticeships work under the supervision of a mentor, providing one-on-one support.

5. Credentials

When the program is completed, apprentices earn a portable, nationally-recognized credential
