Apprenticeships

See for yourself how we’re bridging classrooms and careers!

Apprenticeships bring the classroom and the career together, combining job-related credit courses with structured on-the-job training. The goal for apprenticeship programs is to provide workers with advanced skill sets that meet the specific needs of local employers using a flexible learning approach. Apprentices develop their knowledge and skills in the classroom and on the job site with a mentor as they become an industry professional.

Want to graduate with no debt and a high-skills job? Earn while you learn through the apprenticeship program at MCC.

  • be sponsored by an employer who pays the tuition
  • earn a stackable certificate and industry certifications upon completing the program
  • graduate with no college debt
