Employers across the nation and the Lowcountry report an increasingly difficult time in filling middle-skill (technical training) jobs. In South Carolina, where 53% of all jobs require middle-skill training, there is a severe lack of properly trained workers and as more workers retire, the trend is growing. To help address this issue, Trident Technical College established the Apprenticeship Office whose primary purpose is to partner with local employers who are interested in starting registered apprenticeships with the United States Department of Labor and through that partnership train the next generation of skilled workers.


What is a Registered Apprenticeship?
A registered apprenticeship is an employer-sponsored flexible training program that cultivates highly skilled workers who meet the workforce demands of a competitive global economy.
What Makes Apprenticeship Training Different?
An apprenticeship differs from the traditional education model in that it is a structured training program involving a combination of classroom instruction and paid on-the-job learning that is done simultaneously.
