Apprenticeship 2000 began in 1995 as an apprenticeship partnership located in the Charlotte, NC region. The goal of Apprenticeship 2000 is to offer technical career opportunities to motivated high school students and employment after graduation. In return, the sponsoring companies obtain highly skilled employees to fit their technical needs.
Our apprentices invest 8,000 hours in training which includes 1,800 hours of
classroom work. In addition to earning an associates degree in Manufacturing
Technology and a journeyman’s certification from the North Carolina Department of
Labor, apprentices are guaranteed jobs after graduation.
