St. Petersburg College looks forward to collaborating with employers to deliver technical instruction through a combination of for-credit and non-credit courses to meet their future workforce. Apprentices will engage in the “earn while you learn” model leading to an industry credential and potential college credit.

Prospective Students Please Read: 

The apprenticeship program at St. Petersburg College is an employer-driven collaboration. As an employer-driven program, St. Petersburg College serves as a direct sponsor. Apprentice candidates are chosen directly by employers, and must first be employed within an organization that is either currently or willing to be sponsored for an apprenticeship program by St. Petersburg College.

Prospective students who are interested in learning more about the college’s degree programs, or programs that align with a specific career interest or goal can contact the recruitment services department, provided under the “STUDENTS PLEASE CONTACT” section on the left-hand side of this page.
