SoCal Pre Apprenticeship is designed to prepare workers for the minimum requirements for entry into an established apprenticeship program. By reaching into high schools, probation departments, parole offices, and community based organizations, SoCal Pre Apprenticeship Program helps to diversify the talent pipeline of skilled workers and expand opportunities for traditionally underserved communities.

Our program has been developed to provide academic knowledge and soft-skills training for a variety of industries. California has long nurtured the development of cutting-edge, knowledge-intensive industries that need skilled workers in entry-level jobs.

SoCal Pre Apprenticeship focuses on improving reading, writing, and math skills necessary to qualify for a California Department of Industrial Relations
(DIR) Registered Apprenticeship Program. Currently our program is the only DIR Registered Pre-Apprenticeship program, recognized by the Division of Apprenticeship Standards (DAS), in the County of San Diego.
