Mt. Hood Community College partners with many apprenticeship training centers. If you are interested in apprenticeship training, you can apply for the apprenticeship just like you would apply for a job. Once accepted into an apprenticeship program, you will receive a paycheck and benefits while also earning college credits at MHCC.

You can take these courses at MHCC - some online options are also available. Or they can be taken at another college and transferred in if needed.
