Apprenticeship Programs are a Win-Win for SCC's Agribusiness Service Technician and Mechatronics Students

SCC students are taking advantage of valuable work-based learning experiences for the Fall Semester. These Learn-Work-Earn apprenticeship programs help local employers fill the need for skilled worker in high-demand industries and provide students funding to support their education while earning a living wage.

Our students experience several benefits from participating in an apprenticeship, including

  • Having a paid, flexible part-time position in their career field
  • Learning from experienced mentors while finishing their education
  • Graduating from college with minimal debt

Recently Seneca Foods offered apprenticeship positions as an Ag Diesel Technician for first-and-second-year Agribusiness Service Technician  students. These students benefit from a good-paying wage and receive on-the-job training. Students have the opportunity to work along experienced mechanics.

V-Tek, Inc. also offered apprenticeship positions for first-and-second-year students in SCC’s Mechatronics program.
