Additional Apprenticeship information

The process of becoming an apprentice starts with employment at an apprentice sponsoring company or with a trade union.  An apprenticeship is an "earn while you learn" program with a built-in formal training agreement (Apprentice Contract) providing on-the-job training and related classroom instruction provided by MATC. The training is received on-the-job where the employer teaches the skills of the occupation. The classroom instruction is theoretical knowledge pertaining to a specific occupation and usually taught at MATC.
