Occupational Apprenticeships

Do you like working with your hands?

How does the idea of working on the job as an apprentice sound to you?

Daytona State College can offer you a variety of programs to suit your interests.

Daytona State College programs are performance based and designed to help students develop the general knowledge, problem solving abilities and skills required for workforce placement in their disciplines. Incorporated into the curricula is “handson” lab participation to promote subject mastery by students. Careful instructional design combined with dedication and a teamwork approach allow our graduates to emerge with the skill and confidence needed to succeed in their career objectives.

Apprenticeship Programs

Apprenticeship programs allow you to earn while you learn. If you’re motivated, you’ll have the opportunity to learn a trade as you work full-time under the supervision of skilled professionals of the trade. Each apprentice receives a prescribed period of on-the-job training to learn applied skills while taking related academic classes. Apprenticeship programs vary in length depending on your program of interest – two years to five years.

Daytona State College provides instruction under the direction of industry apprenticeship committees which sponsor the programs. Students who complete a program successfully are awarded vocational certificates. These programs are registered with the Florida Department of Education Workforce Division.

After completion of an apprenticeship program, graduates may continue their education and enroll in Industrial Management Technology – Electrical (Non-Union), and Electrical (Union) and accepted credit will be awarded as BCT 2990 (Technical Training) for 23 credit hours.

Child Care Apprentice graduates can enroll in the Early Childhood Education AS degree. Seventeen semester hours can be articulated after completing the English and Math requirements.
