“Earn while you learn.” That’s the essence of apprenticeships. Apprenticeship is an excellent pathway to skilled jobs that combine on-the-job learning with relevant classroom instruction. Careers as electricians, plumbers, and other industrial trades often provide employees who are new to the industry with training from current employees (called Journeymen). Who better to learn from than those who have years of experience and knowledge of that trade. BMCC’s apprenticeship programs are in the skilled trades, and are financial-aid eligible once registered as a State of Oregon apprentice and enrolled at BMCC.
