Program Description

Program Description

Students train in classrooms and auto body labs in VCC's facility at the Broadway campus. Instruction is provided through lectures to introduce theory and demonstrations to illustrate practical application of the theory. Students then have ample opportunity in the automotive labs to apply their skills and to demonstrate their knowledge. The college supplies tools and coveralls while the apprentice is a student at VCC. Students must supply their own safety equipment.

An apprenticeship is a system of training that combines work-based training with periods of formal practical and theoretical education. This theoretical instruction is provided by an approved training college or facility. Typically, apprentices take a short break from their employment once a year to complete their training. When an apprentice successfully completes a training program and attains the required number of work-based hours, he/she earns a certificate or ticket, and becomes a journeyperson in his or her trade.
