WANT TO EARN YOUR JOURNEY LEVEL
CERTIFICATION, BUT NEED TO GET PAID?

Registered apprenticeship is a job with good wages. All apprentices enter employment when they begin an apprenticeship program, and they receive automatic incremental raises as their skill levels increase. Apprentices advance through a structured program that gives on the job training paired with college level courses.

If a manufacturer faces a downturn or layoff, Madden places employees with other clients, which means a wider range of on-the-job training for the worker. All while building their journey level certification and earning national, industry-recognized credential towards an associate degree.
