Ready to get started?
As part of the Duke Energy/Piedmont Natural Gas Community College Apprenticeship Grant, ACC will be offering an eight-week pre-apprenticeship from March 16 to May 11, 2023. The class will meet on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6 pm to 8:50 pm. Pre-apprentices will meet an additional three nights for OSHA-10 certification (March 22, March 29, and April 5). Our AID pre-apprenticeship prepares adults for careers in manufacturing and the trades by providing 8 weeks of free, hands-on and classroom instruction that will equip them with trade-specific skills and certifications. If you are interested in finding the right career for you while earning credentials, this is the program for you.

Train Your Own Workforce
Many companies are struggling to find enough qualified job applicants to replace skilled workers they are losing to other companies or retirement. That makes keeping up with demand or growth even more difficult.
Employers all over the country have discovered that apprenticeship is one way to close the skills gap. There are already more than 23,400 registered apprenticeship programs across the nation.
Apprenticeship can help you reduce your turnover rate, increase your productivity, build a pipeline for new talent, and engage your employees as well as create loyalty and leadership in them.
