“As employers bring on apprentices, they get to choose the specific skills and certifications they need to get the job done, which gives businesses an incredible advantage in the marketplace,” said Minah Woo, associate vice president of continuing education and workforce development at Howard Community College. “Apprenticeships allow employers to be nimble, hire skilled workers quickly and increase their productivity and bottom line.”

Howard Community College’s virtual information sessions will include an overview of the college’s apprenticeship programs, as well as a representative from the Maryland Department of Labor to answer questions about apprenticeship incentives and tax benefits.
