Alaska Health Care Apprenticeship Consortium
Health Care Registered Apprenticeship Program
The Alaska Health Care Apprenticeship Consortium’s goal is to produce a highly skilled workforce for Alaska’s health care employers. Equally important is providing career pathways for Alaskans who want work in health care without career limitation. AHCAC brings this value to all employers and their employees by offering apprenticeship training programs at an affordable cost.
Apprenticeship offers unique benefits. Apprentices “earn while they learn,” with a paycheck and benefits. As an apprentice’s skill level increases, by learning a trade through online education and hands-on experience, wages increase progressively. After completing an apprenticeship, journey-level status and certification are recognized nationally. Apprenticeship connects job seekers looking to obtain new skills and employers looking for trained and qualified workers. The result is a skilled Alaskan workforce – developed with industry driven training – and employers with a competitive edge.
