Career Opportunities

Fox Valley Technical College, in collaboration with labor and industry, has been involved with apprenticeship training since its beginning. We strive to improve the quality and variety of our apprenticeship programs in response to area industries' changing needs. If you possess a Wisconsin Journey Certificate which includes a minimum of 400 hours of instruction, this program is for you.

At a time when the workplace is continuously changing with advancing technology and flexible organizational practices, the successful worker must possess new and nontraditional skills. With these additional skills, you can add depth to your technical abilities, acquire advanced skills or try a new career direction.

This associate degree program is designed for journeyworkers from various trades who are interested in continuing their education and earning a degree customized to their career interests. Thirty-nine credits are granted toward the degree, based upon completion of the Wisconsin Journey Certificate. Additional study for the degree requires 21 general studies credits.
