Apprenticeship Program

Modern apprenticeships build a highly skilled and customized flow of talent, preparing workers who typically stay around for the long term.

Building upon the Career and Technical Education platform, it organizes classroom and work-based learning around knowledge and skills that specific occupations demand and offers deeper and more extensive on-the-job training.

For students, it creates a clear pathway to employment through a structured work-based learning program and builds interpersonal and technical skill sets through a sophisticated workplace experience.

  • Cyber Security Support Technician -Information Technology degree
  • Information Technology Support Technician -Information Technology degree
  • Information Technology Network Analyst -Information Technology degree
  • Electronics Technician-Simulation degree 
  • Electromechanical Technician-Technical Studies degree

THE PATH

President’s Commission on Apprenticeships —Apprenticeship programs, when implemented effectively, provide workers with a career path featuring paid on-the-job training, skills development, and mentorship, while at the same time providing employers with a steady source of highly trained and productive workers. The LRSC Earn and Learn Apprenticeship Program works with both newcomers to the field and seasoned employees looking to upgrade and specialize in their skills.

CORE CURRICULUM

The core of our curriculum is built on a broad foundation of industry-relevant concepts adapted for use in the courses to give students hands-on experience, allowing students to transition easily from class to work and back. The program and curriculum content are built with each industry partner in mind and align with the job skills. We train to meet your career goals!

INTERACTIVE COURSEWORK

The interactive coursework covers the analytical and technical skills necessary to monitor and respond to situations that arise. Our curriculum aligns with industry-standard certification-exam content, to prepare an individual to pass exams from industry leaders. At the end of the apprenticeship program, students gain both experience in the profession as well as an Associate of Applied Science Degree in their chosen field.

DONE IN 2

LRSC’s Apprenticeship Program is designed as a two- to three-year program in partnership with employers. Students are assigned a mentor at their employer to work with throughout the program. LRSC offers apprenticeship and mentor coaching as a distinct part of program management. The curriculum is delivered online or at the worksite which makes it convenient for individuals to Earn & Learn. Academic credit is offered for qualified certifications and experience. The required technical courses are front-loaded so apprentices can rapidly advance their knowledge, skills, and competency.
