Community colleges often play a critical role in Registered Apprenticeship programs. They can develop the curriculum and provide the classroom instruction portion of an apprenticeship. They can provide college credits leading toward, or even completion of, an associate degree.
As Registered Apprenticeship as a workforce development tool continues to flourish across the country, the roles for many community colleges are also growing. It is not uncommon for community colleges to screen apprenticeship applicants, work with economic and workforce development, or even act as the program sponsor, handling the administration of the Registered Apprenticeship program.
