Apprenticeship Program

Community colleges, organized labor and several New Jersey state agencies formed a coalition to develop a statewide model for awarding college credit for registered apprenticeships in the building and construction trades.

This model creates a pathway connecting college-level learning in local union apprenticeship training programs to degree programs in New Jersey’s community colleges and senior colleges and universities.

NJ PLACE demonstrates how apprenticeships can serve not as an alternative to a college education but rather as a pathway leading to a college degree.
