Atlantic Technical College

On November 4, 2016, in recognition of National Apprenticeship Week, Atlantic Technical College (ATC) hosted a luncheon to recognize the important role our Apprenticeship coordinators play in making our Apprenticeship program successful.  Attendees included representatives from Broward College, the lead partner on the American Opportunities Act Grant which provides funding for books, tools and supplies for apprenticeship students and programs.  Four apprentices representing different industries were recognized for their outstanding performance; Chris Davidson (machining), Amaury Dorrego (ironworkers), Otis Johnson (Ft. Lauderdale Housing Step-Up) and David Manas (HVAC). One of our newest partners, Jose Morales from DeWalt, offered student discounts for tools, and donated tools to the programs.  The apprenticeship staff at ATC include Robert B. Crawford, Director, John Felser, Assistant Director and Roseanne Farino, Apprenticeship Department Coordinator.


Apprenticeship Training – Earn While You Learn:

apprenticeship program personellApprenticeship is a method of training individuals in a trade using a combination of on-the-job skills development and classroom/lab related instruction. There are both union and non-union programs. Apprenticeship training programs in Florida operate in accordance with federal and state laws and rules. Apprenticeship training offers the individual a chance to “earn while you learn.” In addition to a paid 40 hour on-the-job training work week under the supervision of a journeyperson, apprentices are required to attend related training on selected evenings and/or weekends.

Wage increases are granted as the apprentice gains time in training and acquires experience.

Apprenticeship training programs vary in length depending on the trade and can take from three to five years to complete.

Atlantic Technical College serves as the Apprenticeship LEA (Local Educational Agency) for Broward County Public Schools, and coordinates the largest apprenticeship training program in Florida.
