The MAT2 Apprenticeship Program is an innovative, industry-driven workforce development strategy that was designed to provide a debt-free associate degree, industry-aligned education, and real-world training. In a new video, MAT² Apprentices and a MAT² Graduate share their experience in the program, provide advice, and describe some benefits of the program.

“You’re going to have a lot more doors open up for you and a variety of different career options and positions because of the various skill sets we learn,” said MAT² Apprentice Saeed Alrayyashi.

Many of the apprentices note the hands-on experience, a debt-free degree, and opportunities for growth as some of the many advantages of the program.

“There are a lot of benefits to not having to go into debt to get an education, and I like the idea of being able to work hands on, which is really something I enjoyed in high school,” said MAT² Apprentice Briana Warnke.
