Pasco-Hernando State College is expanding its apartment maintenance technician apprenticeship program beginning Jan. 9 to include course offerings at its Spring Hill campus.

The expansion of this apprenticeship program helps bolster PHSCs continued efforts toward increasing opportunities for students seeking non-traditional learning experiences through workforce certification.

The 12-month program includes 183 hours of classroom instruction relating to the technical skills needed while concurrently placing the apprentices with a leading apartment property management team in the area where they complete 2,000 hours of paid on-the-job training. Students can expect to earn their OSHA 10, HVAC EPA 608, HVAC EPA General, and certified apartment maintenance technician certifications, as well as a certificate of completion from PHSC.

Upon completion of the program students will receive job placement assistance to fill industry vacancies as full-time apartment maintenance technicians.
