On November 14, 2017, 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, and Valvery Hillsman, Department of Education.

The apprenticeship staff at ATC include Robert B. Crawford, Director, Roseanne Farino, Apprenticeship Department Coordinator, and Maria Kavallas, Apprenticeship Department.



Apprenticeship Training – Earn While You Learn:

apprenticeship program personell
Apprenticeship is a method of training individuals, in a trade, using a combination of on-the-job skills development and classroom/lab related instruction. Atlantic Technical College serves as the Apprenticeship Local Educational Agency (LEA) for Broward County Public Schools and coordinates the largest number of apprenticeship training programs in Florida, operating 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. Wages increase as the apprentice raises their skill level through training and work experience. Apprenticeship training programs vary in length, depending on the trade and can take from two to five years to complete. There are both union and non-union programs.

Upon completion of an Apprenticeship program and meeting eligibility requirements, students may be able to transfer college credits to Broward College toward an Associate Degree.

The Council on Occupational Education (COE) does not accredit avocational programs such as ESOL, ABE, GED® Test Preparation, AAAE, or Apprenticeship. In addition, these programs do not qualify for Title IV financial aid assistance.
