Registered apprenticeships, a proven and industry-driven training model provides a talent pipeline that can help to address current workforce challenges. Registered apprenticeships are not only for those interested in construction or trade; many also cover government, education, healthcare, transportation, and more. ESWC is committed to advancing registered apprenticeships by collaborating with local businesses and educators and empowering local job seekers to participate in employment and training programs.  

Whether you are just starting a new career or are looking for a change, an apprenticeship can help you find a well-paying job while gaining hands-on experience. Apprentices earn while they learn, reducing their need to take on debt. If you are a business looking for a way to grow your talent pipeline, a registered apprenticeship program could benefit you. Weld County currently has 19 registered apprenticeship programs for careers such as electronic technician, correction officer, and various roles in the healthcare field.

For more information about registered apprenticeships, contact Work-Based Learning Navigator Andrew Yost at ayost@weldgov.com or fill out the form above to get in touch with a member of the ESWC team.
