A pre-apprenticeship is a preparatory program that trains people who want to eventually enroll in full-time apprenticeships in certain industries or trades: electrical apprenticeships, HVAC apprenticeships, network cabling apprenticeships etc. Pre-apprenticeship programs equip workers with expertise and real life experience that can help them gain a competitive apprenticeship and job.
Unlike many professional that may require a three or four year bachelors degree, skilled trade professionals often complete a four year apprenticeship program that includes academic training as well as paid on-the-job experience. People who enroll in pre-apprenticeship training get a jump-start on succeeding as an apprentices by learning prerequisite skills, gaining an overview of daily expectations for their field and learning strategies for getting selected into a formal apprenticeship.
Due to the focus of industry standards, pre-apprenticeship training includes an extensive amount of applied hands-on learning where students are able to work on projects designed to shadow the tasks expected while on job sites. While not working on projects, students in pre-apprenticeship programs spend time in a classroom or lab with certified licensed instructors learning for both manuals and code books.
