The Alaska Health Care Apprenticeship Consortium’s goal is to produce a highly skilled workforce for Alaska’s health care employers. Equally important it is to provide career pathways for Alaskans who want work in health care without career limitation. The AHCAC brings this value to all employers and their employees by offering apprenticeship training programs at an affordable cost.

Apprenticeship offers unique benefits. Apprentices “earn while they learn,” with a paycheck and benefits. As an apprentice’s skill level increases, by learning a trade in both a online and on a job site, wages increase progressively. After completing an apprenticeship, journey-level status and certificate are recognized nationally. Apprenticeship connects job seekers looking to obtain new skills and employers looking for trained and qualified workers. The result will be a skilled Alaskan workforce – developed with industry driven training – and employers with a competitive edge.
