On January 19, the Washington State Apprenticeship and Training Council (WSATC) granted official “recognition” to the NA-C Apprenticeship Preparatory Program.
The NA-C program is part of IHAP, the Introduction to Healthcare Employment and Apprenticeship Program. IHAP is a partnership between the Health Care Apprenticeship Consortium and Seattle Jobs Initiative that trains entry-level job seekers for careers in the healthcare sector.
As an officially-recognized apprenticeship program, the NA-C program will now be featured in the WSATC apprenticeship database and will attract high-quality applicants for its program.
In the program, candidates complete online classes and take part in hands-on labs and clinicals. At the end of the program, candidates are prepared to take the Washington State written and skills assessments, and register as a Certified NA-C.
