How Long Does An 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.
Chesapeake Shores Chapter Apprenticeship classes start in the Fall (September) and end in Spring (May). Classes are held two nights a week either on Monday’s & Wednesday’s or Tuesday’s and Thursday’s.
