New tech apprenticeship racks up 1,000 applicants, first two success stories

March 22, 2017

A new, federally funded apprenticeship program aimed at diversifying the tech workforce in Washington has drawn interest from more than 1,000 applicants in just a few months.

And two of its earliest participants have already started yearlong, paid apprenticeships.

WTIA says it is the first registered tech apprenticeship program in the nation. It’s based on the idea that a short, intensive burst of training can be enough to lead a prospective employee to a midlevel, yearlong apprenticeship that can result in a permanent job at a technology company.
