SEIU Local 1000 continues to expand the scope of apprenticeship
opportunities it works to provide to our members. In 2017, the
nation’s first public sector IT apprenticeship program with a
networking focus was launched. The program has since
broadened to also include a focus of help desk/client services.
Nearly 50 IT apprentices have been registered so far, and they
receive on-the-job training as well as college level instruction.
Many of our apprentices have already received promotions
into their sought-after IT classifications. In 2019, SEIU Local
1000 partnered with Government Operations Agency, the
California Department of Technology, Division of Apprenticeship
Standards, IBM, and American River College to establish an
apprenticeship aimed at mainframe computing. The most recent
addition to SEIU Local 1000’s portfolio of apprenticeships is the
Cybersecurity Apprenticeship Program, which has been developed as
another partnership with American River College, along with the
Division of Apprenticeship Standards, Franchise Tax Board, and
Labor & Workforce Development Agency.
