Getting hands-on experience through an apprenticeship is critical training for many trades and technical careers.

To help students in this area, LCCC is partnering with the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) and industry to build registered apprenticeship opportunities.

LCCC has been awarded $140,000 to use from 2019 to 2022 to expand the number of Department of Labor Registered Apprenticeship opportunities in the region. The AACC is collaborating with selected community colleges to provide relevant career and technical education in support of registered apprenticeship initiatives serving the institutions’ unique labor market needs and target industries.

LCCC has identified three high-need areas for priority development:

  • Plumbing
  • HVAC
  • Advanced Manufacturing

The focus of the award is to establish the necessary curriculum, infrastructure and systems at LCCC, and serve as a liaison between industry, the Wyoming Office of Apprenticeships and the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services.
