IT Pre-Apprenticeship Program

Interested in a career in IT? TLG’s IT Pre-Apprentice Program/IT Career Program may be just what you are looking for.

TLG IT Pre-Apprentice Program

IT careers are one of the fastest growing areas of the economy and career prospects are excellent. Getting the recognized skills to land a job can be tough. TLG has partnered with Apprenti’s IT Apprenticeship Program to introduce an IT Pre-apprenticeship Program to help you jump start the process to an IT Apprenticeship or direct to an IT Career.

Who Can Apply?

Application to the IT Pre-Apprenticeship program is similar to the Apprenti application process. You do not need IT experience to be accepted into the program. Anyone over 18, with a high school diploma or equivalent, a U.S. citizen or permanent resident (and if a veteran – must have other than a dishonorable discharge), can apply for the program by taking the online assessment. Apprenti on-line assessment is required.

How to Apply?

Take the Apprenti online Aptitude Assessment. You must have a minimum score of 80% to be eligible to apply to the TLG IT Pre-Apprenticeship program. A score of 85% or above qualifies you for a program interview. Candidates who pass the interview will be accepted into the IT Pre-Apprentice program. TLG’s interview and program acceptance also qualify you for Apprenti employer interviews at the successful completion of the program.

How Does the IT Pre-Apprenticeship Work?

The IT Pre-Apprenticeship program offers you the advantage of scheduling your classroom training to fit your schedule. When you pre-register for the program, you will be scheduled for an interview with a TLG program administrator.

  • IT Pre-Apprenticeship candidates with a successful interview are pre-qualified for Apprenti employer hiring interviews. At the successful conclusion of the classroom training you are eligible for an interview for upcoming apprenticeships for which you qualify. With the IT Pre-Apprenticeship Program when you have a qualifying score, the rank number is irrelevant. 

Upon program acceptance, you will be enrolled in accelerated Instructor-led classroom and hands-on technical training full-time. The length varies from three to four months depending on your IT specialty, and you will earn industry recognized certifications. Following successful completion of the Instructor-led training and successful hiring partner interviews, you will enter the next 12 months paid On-the-Job-Training (OJT) or go direct to an IT career. If an Apprenti employer apprenticeship interview is not immediately available at the end of the training, TLG Learning will work with you through the training to prepare for employer interviews and will arrange a minimum of three direct IT Career interviews.

How Much Will It Cost?

The IT Pre-Apprenticeship program is eligible for GI Bill® funding. The costs will vary based on the specific program.

Can you apply directly for a full-time position as an alternative to an apprenticeship?

After graduation, you can have the opportunity to apply directly to a full-time IT position rather than the apprenticeship.

TLG will provide resume and interview preparation, an opportunity to create your own job portfolios, LinkedIn profile & professional websites as well as video resumes for students interested in applying directly for other IT positions.

If this program sounds like a fit for you, you can complete and return the pre-registration application. You will be assigned a queue number, and an interview will be scheduled.
