So much emphasis has been placed on preparing all high school students for college that may people have lost sight of the role that apprenticeships play in the range of career options. And they are available to workers, both young and not so young. Apprenticeship can provide a second career for people not just out of high school.
We talk with two journeymen who have just completed their training about their work and why they prefer it to more scholastic pursuits. We also talk with a man who bridges both worlds, co-ordinating training at the College of Southern Nevada.
