High school juniors and seniors can apply for an apprenticeship with one of many companies in Alamance County. Students can earn their degree in mechatronics engineering (for free) while working and getting paid!
The four-year Career Accelerator Program combines academic and on the job training. A student will be working at the company, but also finishing classes at their high school, and attending classes at Alamance Community College. During the four years, a student will earn while they learn. They will be paid for time working at the company, but also for the time they attend classes at Alamance Community College. The company will also pay the student tuition at ACC. During the program a student will receive 6,400 hours of on the job training and 1,600 hours of classroom education.
