Apprenticeship & Education Center

The Georgetown Campus trains more than 3,000 apprentices and journey-level workers annually in more than 50 different trades. Each of the training centers provides classroom and laboratory space with training equipment focused upon specific trade training needs.

The campus currently cooperates with the following Joint Apprenticeship Committees to provide courses for apprentices and journey workers: Apprentice Related Training Programs. For more information about apprenticeship training visit the Washington State Department Labor & Industry website.

Each program offers certificate options. The variety of certificates plus an associate degree option provide students with the flexibility to reach their personal goals. With the completion of only a few classes outside of their apprenticeship training, apprentices can receive an AAS-T degree in Multi-Occupational Trades, which is transferable into any of Washington State's Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree programs, as well as programs at colleges that have an AAS-T articulation agreement with Seattle Colleges.

Apprenticeship programs offer immediate employment while training at family-wage jobs. Our students learn in the classroom and labs with the college and obtain practical hands-on experience in the industry. Upon completion, the student is knowledgeable and experienced in his or her chosen trade or occupation. The curriculum is developed in collaboration with business, labor, industry, and government through apprenticeship training committees, industry coalitions, and regulatory agencies. Employers and industry leaders are actively involved in training advancements and product development.
