Apprenticeship is a combination of working and learning that benefits both the apprentice and the employer. WakeWorks® apprentices receive a paycheck plus on-the-job training at a local employer – all while pursuing a degree or professional credential through Wake Tech. Apprentices are awarded an official Journeyworker’s certificate upon completion of the apprenticeship, signifying that they have mastered the skills in their field. Thanks to funding provided by Wake County, tuition, fees, books, uniforms and tools for students accepted into apprenticeship or pre-apprenticeship programs are already covered.
