Apprenticeship Programs

Mercer County Technical Schools offers Federal and State approved apprenticeship training programs. Some programs may satisfy Veterans Education requirements. An apprentice must take a minimum of 156 hours of job-related schooling per year of apprenticeship. Students must successfully complete all units of a program (usually 16 units) in order to qualify for program completion.

All apprenticeship courses are designed to aid apprentices both in theory and some practical experience. Emphasis will be placed on those areas not covered in the daily job requirements.

An apprenticeship can be accomplished by having your employer contact the Federal Department of Labor. Mercer County Technical Adult Evening School conducts the related instruction portion of apprenticeship training and in no manner securing employment relative to apprentices. Certificates are issued upon successful completion of a program. Additional apprenticeship programs can be instituted by requests from the local industry, if feasible.

The following is a complete breakdown of course descriptions and related instruction courses for the apprenticeship program as administered by the Mercer County Technical Adult Evening School. Each block of instruction consists of 39 hours and is broken into thirteen 3-hour class sessions.

The services of the Apprenticeship Coordinator are available by appointment for guidance and counseling. For information or an appointment call the Adult Evening School at (609) 586-5146.
