The goal of Apprenticeship 2000 is to offer technical career opportunities to high school students and employment after graduation. In return, the sponsoring companies obtain highly skilled employees to fit technical needs. Partner companies provide onsite apprenticeships in various technical trades including mechatronics, tool & die, and machining. The 8000 hour program spans four years of training. Upon graduation, students earn an AAS degree in Mechatronics Engineering Technology and are awarded a Journeyman’s Certificate by the North Carolina Department of Commerce. We work closely with local high schools. High school juniors and seniors considered for an apprenticeship with us should have completed courses in algebra and geometry and maintain a minimum 2.8 GPA. Some partner companies may offer adult apprenticeships for those who have already graduated high school. However, these are only considered for individuals who are part of a participating partner company’s current workforce.
