In Washington State, when you engage in apprenticeship, college tuition is reduced by 50%. In most cases that means AJAC, classes cost around $250-275 per quarter class.

Nearly 60% of AJAC’s employers participate in a tuition-reimbursement program to help apprentices offset the cost of tuition and textbooks.

Employers have the option to pay for their apprentice’s tuition, or reimburse their apprentice’s tuition based on parameters set forth by the hiring employer.

Donate Used Equipment

AJAC’s programs are expanding throughout Washington State. To meet these increasing demands, AJAC is seeking used machining equipment for teaching.

Our apprentices will use this equipment for hands-on learning during their apprenticeship classes. These classes take place at our partnering high school and community/technical college machine shops.
