How It Works


Step One

An employer contacts ApprenticeshipNC to learn more about how apprenticeship can help them elevate their business.


Step Two

We build a program with their local community college that includes instruction that’s relevant to the industry and position. Instruction can include classroom learning, correspondence, or individual instructional programs.


Step Three

ApprenticeshipNC and the employer review the program and agree on Customized Standards of Apprenticeship.


Step Four

The program is registered at the local community college and can begin enrolling registered and non-registered apprentices.


Step Five

The employer onboards an apprentice and officially launches a program.
