- College Credit and Career Growth – Apprentices can earn college credit for apprenticeship courses. For-credit courses also provide a starting point for future college attendance that can expand future employment opportunities in their trade.
- Funding for Training – Apprentice class attendance generates Related and Supplemental Instruction (RSI) funding that the Program Sponsor can reinvest into their training program.
