These pre-apprenticeship programs offer students interested in pursuing careers in clean energy and environmental efficiency a launching pad into an "earn while you learn" career pathway. These programs will link clean energy based curriculum taken in high school with post-secondary crendentialing, degree attainment and paid on-the-job learning.
Students who start in a qualifying pre-apprenticeship program while in high school and enroll in a registered apprenticeship program within 120 days after graduation qualify for the youth apprenticeship tuition waiver at a NC community college.
Energy Career Pathways and Training Program aims to bridge the gaps between academic technology training and the needs of the energy industry through certification programs and on-the-job training. For more information, please visit www.apprenticeshipnc.com.
