Apprenticeship Training Program

Students seeking admission to an apprenticeship program must meet the admission requirements of the IBEW, Bureau of Apprenticeship Training, U.S. Department of Labor, and Southwestern Illinois College.

An apprenticeship completer can work at the trade while pursuing a bachelor's degree. A bachelor's degree would, in turn, open doors that could enable the construction worker to choose from an unlimited number of careers in the industry.
