“You’​re Hired!” — Apprenti​ceships in Health Care

When you’re ready, you’​re ready. Why wait years to gain skills and unleash your potential when you can start now? Become an apprentice to begin the career you’ve always wanted.

Dallas College is leading a project funded by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) creating apprenticeships in health care-related careers. The project has a nationwide scope involving health care employers, apprentices and relevant industry associations. Employers and apprentices have access to robust Industry-Recognized Apprenticeship Programs (IRAPs), DOL Registered Apprenticeship Programs (RAPs) and pre-apprenticeship opportunities. Apprentices earn at least one credential and are employed full time in either clinical or nonclinical roles.

Apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway where employers develop and prepare their future workforce, while individuals obtain paid work experiences, classroom instruction and portable, nationally recognized credentials.
