Apprenticeship 2000 Application Process:
There are four stages to Apprenticeship 2000’s application process.
- Registration (April – December)
- Partner companies recruit at some local high schools, usually during the month of November.
- High school juniors and seniors may register.
- You must be a junior or senior in January of the following year, this is when we’ll have an open house.
- We will work with your guidance counselor to determine if you meet the grade, attendance and other criteria requirements.
- Parents, encourage your children to register themselves if they are interested.
- Students may register by completing an online”Get Started” form.
- Registration period runs to the end of each year.
- Open House (January)
- Those who registered by year’s end and meet the qualifications, will be invited to an open house along with their parents.
- At the open house, we will have an overview presentation of Apprenticeship 2000.
- After the presentation, there is a question and answer session.
- Students then can decide if they would like to participate in an orientation.
- Orientation (January – March)
- Orientations are for students only.
- After attending the open house, each student will be assigned to an orientation class.
- The orientations last four evenings during one week at a partner company (about 4 hours each day).
- Orientations consist of hands-on activities and written tests.
- Partner companies determine if you are a good fit for an apprenticeship.
- You determine if our apprenticeship is right for you!
- Summer Pre-Apprenticeship Period (June – August)
- Our six-week summer trial period is offered to motivated top performers from the orientations.
- This is essentially a six-week “job-interview” at a partner company.
- It is a hands-on, in depth trial period.
- Each student’s mechanical aptitude is evaluated by a trainer.
- Each week is a paid 40 hour work week, including two days at CPCC.
- The top performers are offered an apprenticeship at the end of the pre-apprenticeship period.
