A mix of on-the-job learning and classroom learning under a certified expert. SCC students learn a valuable, specific skill, craft, trade, or profession while actually working and earning pay. Local experts assist and lead SCC students in completing industry-recognized credentials or college credits. 450-2,000 hours can be a Registered or Industry Recognized Apprenticeship.

The Apprenticeship Office administers all apprenticeships at the Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES). Please get in touch with their office directly.
