From Explore the Trades:
Apprenticeships are time-tested employee training systems that combine job-related technical instruction with structured on-the-job learning experiences. The plumbing, heating, cooling and electrical trades are built upon apprenticeships.
Apprentices gain skills and in-depth industry knowledge through paid on-the-job training that puts them ahead in their pursuit of a great career.
Most states require aspiring skilled tradespeople to complete formal education through a trade school or an apprenticeship. In some instances, students may complete their apprenticeship during school as part of their training. Other times, a license may be obtained in school, then followed by an apprenticeship.
