Apprenticeship is a system of job training in which trainees become highly skilled workers through a combination of worksite learning and classroom learning. It is sometimes called "the other four-year degree": It often takes four years and results in a nationally recognized credential that can open the door to income and job security as good as or better than what college graduates enjoy.
