Earn While You Learn. Apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway where employers can develop and prepare their future workforce, and individuals can obtain instruction, and a portable, nationally recognized credential (U.S. Department of Labor). Whether you are an employee eager to move up the career ladder or an employer building and developing a stable talent pipeline, make us your first stop. Learn about our programs below.
Registered Apprenticeship Programs
Apprentices are hired by a company to take part in on-the-job training, while receiving related technical instruction, for about one year. During an apprenticeship, participants are trained at the company as well as on Hudson’s campus. This allows companies to hire suitable apprentices permanently after the apprenticeship is over.

This 18-month long program is an innovative, dual education opportunity offered in partnership with the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 825 which will prepare apprentices for a career as an Operating Engineering through hands-on apprenticeship experience at Local 825’s training center in Dayton, New Jersey. “With rapid technological advancements driving our changing world, we recognize the necessity to have a better educated workforce to close that divide,” explained Gregory Lalevee, Business Manager of International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 825. “Today’s agreement is a proud moment for our organization as we partner with HCCC to innovate our training programs.”
Through this program, students will also earn an Associate of Applied Science degree in Technical Studies through virtual classes at HCCC. “Hudson County Community College is proud to partner with IUOE Local 825 in building a more educated and highly qualified workforce. This agreement will advance career opportunities, benefit our local economy, and support the advancement of equity,” Dr. Reber stated. “Partnerships like this are valuable and transformative.” For more information, visit 825 Earn And Learn’s website.

The Associate in Applied Science Degree in Technical Studies allows individuals who have successfully completed technical training in an appropriate career field, such as Business, Computer Science, Computer Technology, or Electronics Engineering Technology, to advance their studies and attain a college degree.

We developed the apprenticeship program with HCCC to supply our needs for human capital. We need to build a pipeline of workers that are specifically trained in the skills that we need…the big piece is finding partners in education that were interested in being flexible and interested in a new way of delivering education…at HCCC we found that partner.
