​Apprenticeship and Pre-Apprenticeship

Agricultural apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeships are innovative training programs that provide individuals a chance to “Learn while they Earn.” These programs help employers develop the next generation of agricultural workers and create a pathway for individuals interested in the industry.

Pennsylvania currently has 8 apprenticeship programs and two pre-apprenticeship programs registered with the state’s Apprenticeship and Training Office.
