Skills

These skills are then perfected through experience in a series of job situations, combined with a parallel program of study and related instruction. Such a program is known as an “Apprenticeship.” It is the type of training that takes place as a result of a cooperative plan and employment.

Applicants should be physically capable of performing the essential functions of the apprenticeship program, with or without a reasonable accommodation, and without posing a direct threat to the health and safety of the individual or others.
