To mark National Apprenticeship Week, Western Technical College will host an event, The Apprenticeship Experience, on Thursday, Nov. 14 from 4-7:00 p.m. at the Welding and Apprenticeship Facility, 2860 21st Place S., La Crosse (behind Marcus Theatre).
The event will offer facility tours and allow interested individuals and employers the chance to visit with instructors in the program.
“Apprenticeships are becoming more popular for students and employers,” said Josh Gamer, dean of the Integrated Technology division at Western. “Students actually earn a wage while attending college classes. Several of these salaries reach $70,000.”
Although the event is primarily for those interested in the apprenticeship program, the public is invited to attend.
