What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships Combine Technical Instruction with On-the-job Training

Apprenticeships offer hands-on learning opportunities to apprentices and an expanded talent pool to employers.  Red Rocks Community College (RRCC), in collaboration with Northrop Grumman, has registered a Cybersecurity Apprenticeship as part of the National Apprenticeship System, becoming the first government-recognized cybersecurity apprenticeship in Colorado, and one of only a few in the country.  Read our November 2019 Press Release here.
