Apprenticeship is a training program for individuals who desire to become recognized in a specific trade or craft and do so in a way that adheres to the most current standards. The person completing the apprenticeship is known as an apprentice, and this individual learns the necessary skills of her or his chosen trade by carrying out common tasks for a predetermined length of time. Training is administered by a seasoned trade or craftsman. While an apprenticeship could be compared to classroom learning, apprentices receive pay while learning how to become experts in their trades. Examples of industries that offer apprenticeships include healthcare, food preparation / serving, manufacturing and public safety.
