A New IT Apprenticeship Program is Launching at Montgomery County Community College

Montgomery County Community College (MCCC) is launching its first-ever apprenticeship program with the goal of helping more residents find their way into fulfilling tech careers.

Officially called the MontcoWorks Apprenticeship Program for Information Technology, the program will start this spring.

Across Pennsylvania, apprenticeships are gaining favor, with more than 17,000 active this year, versus 10,000 a decade ago, according to apprenticeship.gov. MCCC did not share a specific enrollment goal — just that it aims to enroll as many apprentices as possible.
