Arizona Western College, under the direction of Jim Larson, Director of Manufacturing and Apprenticeships, aimed to swiftly establish an apprenticeship program within its Career and Technical Education Division. This initiative was designed to enhance workforce preparation through a new electrical apprenticeship program, necessitating a robust platform for managing classroom instruction and on-the-job training.


The college needed to develop the program from scratch, ensuring instructors could track apprentices' progress and collaborate effectively with employers who hired these apprentices. The challenge was to integrate a system that facilitated seamless communication among instructors, employers, apprentices, and program administrators.

"Apprentix enabled rapid launch of our electrical apprenticeship program, bridging education to employment seamlessly. Their support was crucial."
