Apprentices attend class 2 nights per week while they work full-time for their employer during the day. No evening classes are held during the busy summer months.

Classes begin October 5th and 6th 2020 at Pinellas Technical College, Clearwater campus. Classes run from 6 pm to 9 pm and end in April 2021.
*any changes due to Covid-19 guidelines will be communicated directly with the apprentices and their employers.
