What is an Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeship is the oldest method of training that is used to learn a skilled trade. Today, apprenticeships are a combination of on-the-job training (OJT) and classroom instruction (RSI – related supplemental instruction). Apprentices learn the technical skills of their trade through formal classroom training and learn the hands-on skills through supervised on-the-job training.

With an apprenticeship through CITC you will receive formal classroom training without the cost of tuition, and you won’t have to wait until you’ve graduated to begin your career. You will have the opportunity to work with first-class employers to receive paid on-the-job training while under the direct supervision of experienced journey-level workers. With this combination training you learn the “how” and “why” of your trade by applying what you learn in the class to the real world.
“I started my apprenticeship training when I was 40 years old and have NEVER regretted my decision. The money is great, but I go to work because I love what I do.”
– Stacie, 1999 graduate of CITC
