Maroon Icon of Iredell County, with the name "Apprenticeship Iredell".

Apprenticeship Iredell is a partnership between local industries and Mitchell Community College, where apprentices are hired by an industry partner and receive paid on-the job training while attending Mitchell to earn a selected credential.

Successful apprenticeship programs have three main components: on-the-job training, related instruction, and rewards for skills gained.

Components of Successful Apprenticeship Programs


Structured On-The-Job Training: As an apprentice you will work full-time with one of our partners. To see current business partners, click here. While you are working you will be assigned a mentor who will be there to help train and support you while you are an apprentice.

Related Instruction: As an apprentice, to help make sure you are gaining all the skills needed to be successful, you will also enroll in courses at Mitchell Community College. Depending on what you are interested in pursuing depends on the length of the apprenticeship program. 

Rewards for Skill Gains: As an apprentice you are guaranteed a wage increase every year that you process through the program successfully.

These three components come together to create a strong foundation to build your future.
