Registered Apprenticeship is an “earn and learn” model that combines on-the-job learning with related classroom instruction that increases an apprentice’s skill level and wages. It is a proven solution for businesses to recruit, train, and retain highly skilled workers.

Industrial Apprenticeship Programs

  • The Industrial Apprenticeship degree program is designed to provide degree opportunities for individuals in U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) approved programs.
  • Ivy Tech works with employers across Indiana to design and deliver technical programs specific to the needs of the industries.
  • The degree program incorporates the related technical education and on-the-job-training (OJT) necessary to earn a Journeyperson’s Card and the general education classes necessary to earn a Technical Certificate or Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree.
  • The Industrial Apprenticeship program is designed to be a flexible and responsive means for the College and the state to respond to the challenge of preparing a highly skilled workforce for Indiana’s employers. 

Building Trades JATC Apprenticeship Programs

The Apprenticeship Technology programs are a working partnership between Ivy Tech Community College and individual Joint Apprenticeship & Training Committees (JATC) that are approved by the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL), Office of Apprenticeship. After an applicant is accepted into the apprenticeship program by the JATC, the apprentice is then registered with the USDOL, and enrolled at Ivy Tech.

This joining together of higher education and the technical training expertise of the JATC provides the apprentice with an opportunity to enjoy the educational strengths of both the College and JATC.  Upon completion of the general education and technical courses, they will then be awarded an USDOL, Office of Apprenticeship certificate and an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree from Ivy Tech.
