American River College conducts, in cooperation with industry, a number of apprenticeship programs. An apprenticeship program is a formal system of occupational training from one to five years, that combines paid employment, on-the-job training and job related college instruction in order to develop skilled workers.

Apprenticeship programs are a cooperative effort between employers, the Department of Labor (DOL) and/or the Division of Apprenticeship Standards (DAS), and the college.

Enrollment in an apprenticeship course is limited to registered apprentices. Information on admission to apprenticeship status can be obtained from the local trade in which you are interested, or from the office of the Dean of Technical Education.
