Apprenticeship Opportunities

Grow your health care career with our apprenticeship programs

Fairview’s apprenticeship program offers an earn-as-you-learn workforce training model. You’ll receive classroom instruction and on-the-job training to provide the industry-specific knowledge needed to perform within an area of expertise.

As an apprentice, you are actively employed and earn a salary as you train, and the process is structured to enable a healthy, work-life balance. Upon completion of your apprenticeship, you earn a nationally-recognized credential in a highly skilled, in-demand occupation.

With apprenticeship training, you sign a written agreement with Fairview Health Services that outlines the apprenticeship requirements, including:

  • ·The length of time you will be in training
  • ·The hours of related educational training
  • ·A listing of the skills you will learn throughout the specified timeframe
