Bristol Technical Education Center Apprenticeship Program is a formal training program fully approved by the State of Connecticut Department of Labor’s Office of Apprenticeship Training. Apprentice and extension courses are offered in the evening.

We provide related instruction for all license categories in the following areas:

  • Electrical

  • Heating/Cooling

  • Plumbing

  • Sheet Metal

Our program provides apprentices with a comprehensive knowledge of their selected career. They learn on the job while working under the supervision of an experienced journey-person and will be registered with an approved sponsor.

Students taking all coursework required for their license category graduate the program with all related instruction hours needed for their trade area and knowledge and skills necessary to get licensed with the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection.
