Apprenticeship Experience and Program Questions
You’ll join a first-of-its-kind program that leads to a Nationally recognized Apprenticeship Certification and opportunity for massive career growth! In a 5 day week you’d work for 40 hours per week at your data analyst job. On evenings and some weekends, you will complete projects and learn new skills with the rest of the apprentices. The cohort, all of the apprentices, meet 2 times per week to collaborate and learn from data analyst experts.
The apprenticeship is learning new data skills through working a data analyst job in combination with studying and projects outside of work. You can view the Data Analyst curriculm here. The DCI Team will meet with you and your employer regularly to ensure you are bringing the maximum value to your employer in addition to furthering your own skills.
Sessions are held online via video conferencing
We are in the process of recruiting local and regional experts in the field.
DCI does not employ apprentices directly, nor do we guarantee placement. We work with apprentices to develop the necessary technical and soft skills, portfolio, certifications and employer outreach plan to attain employment prior to starting the apprenticeship. Since we know that finding a role can be a challenge in this environment, we defer any tuition costs until after the apprentice starts a full-time role in their respective field.
Your employment is entirely between you and the Company, so your employment is entirely at-will.
Only you can answer that question. That fact that you’re viewing this page is a great sign though! Typically, our apprentices spend about 10-15 hours outside of their full-time job learning and applying their skills. If that sounds exciting, you likely have what it takes.
Apprentices who already have the certification can elect to earn another relevant certification, or dive deeper into a project that demonstrates their application of the knowledge.
Compensation is negotiated with your employer
