Northcentral Technical College (NTC) in Wausau announced Jan. 21 what it is calling “a one-of-a-kind apprenticeship program that aims to help increase essential healthcare workers.”
The Medical Assistant Apprenticeship gives students the opportunity to earn a college degree while completing a State of Wisconsin Registered Apprenticeship.
“It’s also a win-win for apprentices because
they get paid by their healthcare employer while learning on-the-job and through supplemental classroom instruction,” said Katie Metko, NTC apprenticeship manager.
“Registered Apprenticeship is a time-tested workforce solution that benefits both employers and apprentices,” said Joshua Johnson, state director of the Bureau of Apprenticeship Standards with the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development.
