Apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway where employers can develop and prepare their future workforce, and individuals can obtain paid work experience, classroom instruction, and a portable, nationally recognized credential.

    Employers that develop a DOL Registered Apprenticeship program see benefits as: develop and grow a highly skilled, diverse workforce; retain company knowledge as experts near retirement; train current staff for more advanced positions in your company.

  • Serve On Education Advisory Boards

    To ensure that programs are contemporary and aligned with industry standards, Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs meet regularly with industry specific professionals who provide advice on the curriculum, equipment and internships necessary to meet the specific needs of industry-relevant employers.

    All Career and Technical Education programs in Colorado are required to consult with industry experts twice per year to make sure that the curriculum reflects current needs and methodologies.
