Returning Technical/Trade Professionals – Apprenticeship Programs

Apprentice courses are designed to aid apprentices both in theory and practical experiences to meet the requirements of US and NJ Departments of Labor. Emphasis is placed on those areas not normally covered in routine job performance. The student’s sponsoring employer provides the actual field (on-the-job) experience. Apprentices are required to take a minimum of 144 hours of classroom instruction per year and 2000 hours of on-the-job training per year for the length of the apprenticeship.

Camden County College is proud to offer apprenticeship training opportunities in the areas of:

Electrical, Plumbing, and HVAC. The apprentice program is a partnership between industry and educational institutions. In order to qualify for enrollment as an apprentice, it is necessary for the student to be employed in their chosen field. Apprentices MUST be registered with the US Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship, and with the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

All registered apprentices who successfully complete the on-the-job and related classroom training requirements are eligible to receive a Certificate of Completion from the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship. Registered apprentices, who successfully complete the apprenticeship career related classroom instruction, are eligible to earn up to 30 college credits toward Camden County College’s 60-credit
Associates Degree in Technical Studies.

Enrolling in apprenticeship courses at the College DOES NOT automatically register students as apprentices. Employers (sponsors) and employees (apprentices) must contact the Apprenticeship Coordinator at Camden County College to facilitate the application process.
