Work-Based Learning (WBL) combines classroom instruction with practical work experience that
is directly related to a program of study. Emphasis is placed on integrating classroom
learning with related work experience. Employers set the standard for the quality of work
and determine the rate of pay. Students must meet the employer standards as well as the
academic requirements of the College.
Apprenticeships combine classroom instruction and on-the-job training to prepare students for an industry. Students are paid for their work and their wages will increase as they progress in the program. Upon graduation, apprentices will receive a Certificate of Completion and will have earned the highly skilled "journey worker" designation.
