Why Become an Apprentice?

Becoming an apprentice will give you the opportunity to gain on-the-job learning, a competitive advantage in the workforce, higher wages, and career advancement.

"The apprentice program combines book knowledge with the real life experience. This has tremendously impacted my learning-I am learning things in a real clinic with real patients, instead of only studying theories in a textbook. I feel prepared to enter the workforce."
