Washtenaw Community College (WCC) will host several events during the U.S. Department of Labor’s eighth annual National Apprenticeship Week November 14-18.

WCC’s events are being hosted to observe the 85th anniversary of the National Apprenticeship Act and to increase student and employer awareness of and participation in the college’s diverse and high-quality apprenticeship programs.

The college partners with employers to offer apprenticeships in the areas of advanced manufacturing (robotics and automated systems), information technology (cybersecurity), transportation (automotive services, automotive test and powertrain development technicians) and welding.

Apprenticeships at WCC were developed to help employers fill their talent needs with qualified employees who possess advanced skills and knowledge.

Apprentice employees earn wages while on the job and participate in registered technical instruction or specialized WCC courses customized and tailored to the demands of specific industries.

To celebrate and raise awareness for this event, WCC’s Center for Career Success will host several events during National Apprenticeship Week. They are:

  • Virtual Apprenticeship Information Session – 3:30-4:30 p.m. Tuesday, November 15. Registration link: https://bit.ly/3G50Ve4

This event will focus on educating students, school counselors and local employers to the benefits of registered apprenticeship programs, an introduction to the program’s requirements, as well as a closer look at the career paths they encompass through guided tours of WCC’s innovative facilities. Breakfast will be offered.
