Apprenticeships

The Apprenticeship Program serves as the information center for apprenticeship training on campus. This office provides training and specialized record keeping for apprentices employed in various trade professions in the area. Classes offered at LBCC are for registered apprentices and people interested in becoming apprentices. To become a registered apprentice, a person must be employed by an employer participating in the state apprenticeship program. Taking apprenticeship classes can give the student credentials for employment into the trades.
