Illinois Central College Offers Openings in Select Apprenticeship and Apprenticeship-Ready Programs
Illinois Central College is seeking interested individuals to fill select career and technical programs with openings for summer and fall enrollment. Programs with openings for additional students include the Industrial Maintenance and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machining apprenticeship programs, as well as a Pre-Apprenticeship/Workforce Ready Program. Potential students who are currently unemployed or under-employed are encouraged to apply.
ICC’s apprenticeship programs provide a mix of 300-450 hours of coursework per year, in addition to on-the-job training with local companies, to train for a specific career. The partnering companies hire the apprentices and pay their tuition/fees and books plus a salary while they learn. Successful students can complete the apprenticeship program with an associate degree debt-free and commit to work an additional two years for the sponsoring company. Candidates first apply to ICC and then are screened and pre-qualified prior to company interviews.
Pre-Apprenticeship/Workforce Ready Program
Openings also are available for the Pre-Apprenticeship/Workforce Ready Program, which helps prepare students with the Math, English and other essential skills to become college-ready apprentices. All participants are paid while attending training. This eight-week program has immediate openings for June/July and August/September.
ICC is aligning its programs and partnering with businesses to fill regional skills gaps reported in the areas of manufacturing, information technology and health care, while providing individuals a credential leading to jobs with a living wage.
