APPRENTICESHIP 

What is an Apprentice?

An apprentice is a highly committed individual who works full time under the direction of a skilled craftsperson while attending classes in the evening. ABC Apprentices are registered with Maryland Apprenticeship & Training Council (MATC), National Center for Construction, Education & Research (NCCER), approved for Veterans Administration benefits, and receive safety certifications including CPR, First Aid, OSHA and trade specific training.

How Long Does Apprenticeship Last?
Most apprenticeships last for 4 years or the equivalent of 8,000 supervised On-the-Job-Training Hours (OJTs) & a minimum of 576 classroom hours taught by certified & experienced instructors. In the Maryland apprenticeship process, both on the job training and classroom training are required. Registered apprentices work full-time while attending ABC Chesapeake Shores' state-certified classes. 

ABC Chesapeake Shores does not provide job placement services. Potential apprentices find employment in their trade, then register with the ABC Chesapeake Shores' classroom training program. Of course, apprentices are paid for their work throughout their apprenticeship.
