The St. Louis Community College Apprenticeship Institute is a primary resource for encouraging, supporting and connecting apprenticeship sponsoring companies to relevant related technical instruction along with identifying emerging occupations/sectors for possible new apprenticeship opportunities.
The Apprenticeship Institute seeks to provide personal support and guidance for companies and their apprentices throughout their apprenticeship training ultimately enriching lives, our community and economic growth.
STLCC is a member of US-DOL’s Regional Apprentice Community College (RACC) network of colleges and Registered Apprenticeship programs. We are working to provide college-to-career opportunities to a significant number of students/workers.
