Apprenticeship training at Seminole State College is provided in conjunction with local contractors and construction associations. Areas of study include building maintenance, commercial ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration, electricity and fire sprinkler technology.

Training covers a specified period of time during which the apprentice learns a skill or trade under the supervision of a competent craftsman. Each apprentice must complete specified hours of on-the-job training and related classroom instruction.
