Apprenticeship programs allow participants to learn while they earn. Motivated individuals have the opportunity to learn a trade as they work full-time under the supervision of skilled professionals of the trade. Apprentices attend related classroom training. 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 program of interest.

These programs are registered with the Apprenticeship Office of Workforce Education, Florida Department of Education.
