Transcript of Maryland Apprenticeship 2.0 - Training that Works: Apprentices Video (Word)

Antonio Ricardo Mines“College wasn’t the route that I wanted to take. I found an alternative option through being a Registered Apprentice. The enrollment was fairly easy. I put my name on the list and was called within a month later. I was in the program for a year and then I got a call from Hawkins Electric and I’ve been working there ever since.” – Antonio Ricardo Mines, Jr., Registered Apprentice


Dan Ordrick“If you’re coming out of high school and you’re not sure you want to go to college, maybe a career in the trades might be for you. It’s not for everybody, but you get paid training, you won’t have to get in debt to get an education and you have guaranteed employment. It’s been one of the most rewarding and challenging things I’ve ever done. Every day gets better and better.” – Dan Ordrick, Registered Apprentice


Robert Gurlick“This Registered Apprenticeship has opened doors that potentially would never have been opened in my life. I am earning while I’m learning. This is paid training that will change my life. It’s a dream come true.” – Robert Gurlick, Registered Apprentice
