This in an increase of $400,000 from last year. Northcentral Technical College has the biggest apprenticeship program in the state.

"This is a win-win for employers because they have the opportunity to do on boarding and provides valuable work experience for the young people,"said Reggie Newson, the secretary of the department of workforce development.
