Why be an apprentice?

Begin the career you want while taking FVCC classes and learn essential skills while earning a salary.

With a progressive wage scale, the more you learn in the classroom and on the job, the more money you make. Many employers pay for the educational costs of their apprentices or offer tuition reimbursement.

According to Montana Registered Apprenticeship, apprentices earn an average of $20,000 more than the state-wide average wage - a difference of $600,000 over a 30-year career.
