Earn While You Learn

Bristol TEC’s Work Based Learning Program reinforces students’ trade theory and project work with experience in an industrial setting. Students learn how to manage a work schedule with their academic and trade requirements. Students can also earn credit hours toward apprenticeships and are compensated monetarily for their work. Many companies pay up to $14 per hour. Some students continue as a full time employee after completing their certificate program at Bristol TEC.
