SPECIALIZED OCCUPATIONAL TRAINING
APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING Apprenticeship is an organized system of paid training in those industrial occupations requiring a wide and diverse range of knowledge and skills. Often the training in an apprenticeship program is provided by the community college system. A worker entering the industry is given continuous, supervised instruction both on and off the job in all aspects of the work required in a skilled occupation. To qualify, applicants must be at least 16 years of age, in good health, and have a positive attitude toward work. Reliability, responsibility, punctuality and an ability to work with others are required. One to two years of vocational training is helpful. Applicants must also show through aptitude testing that they have the ability to learn specific job duties. SAMPLE APPRENTICESHIP OCCUPATIONS Bricklayer, Carpenter, Cook/Chef, Drywall, Electrician, Floor Layer, Glass Setter, Iron Worker Machinist, Mason, Mechanic-Welder, Painter, Pipe Fitter, Plasterer, Plumber, Roofer, Sheet Metal Worker, Tool & Die Maker. If a student is interested in specific apprenticeship training, he or she should contact: Arizona Dept. of Commerce Apprenticeship Training Representative 1700 W. Washington St. Suite 220 Phoenix, Arizona 85007 (602) 771-1184
JOB CORPS Job Corps is the nation’s largest and most successful job training program of it’s kind. This is a federal program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor. Job Corps provides incomeeligible young men and women with an opportunity to gain the experience they need to begin a career or advance to higher education. Visit www.jobcorps.dol.gov for more information.
MILITARY PROGRAMS Campus JROTC instructors and visiting military recruiters may be contacted for current information. Recruiters from each military branch visit HHS regularly. Enlistment – If you enlist, you may enter the armed forces of your choice. Training for many career fields is available. The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is required. ASVAB testing is available to juniors, and some selected seniors may be included. This year Hamilton High
School will administer the test on December 1, 2009. Seniors need to sign up in the Career Center. Juniors will sign up through their teacher. National Guard – If you join a reserve unit or guard unit, you may fulfill most of your obligation while living at home and working or attending college. Meetings are held one weekend per month plus two full weeks of active duty training during the summer. Reserves Offices Training Corps – You may go to college and participate in an ROTC program. This allows you to receive financial assistance while in college and to receive benefits after serving your active duty requirements. ROTC Scholarships – Each year the various military branches provide several ROTC Scholarships. These financial assistance grants provide for the payment of tuition, books, fees, supplies, and equipment, plus a tax-free allowance per month. These scholarships may cover freshman through senior years of college education. Students interested in applying for ROTC scholarships need to give ROTC as one of the addresses for mailing of their score reports when taking the SAT or ACT test. IMPORTANT: Applications for ROTC scholarships have specific deadlines. See a military recruiter for more information. Military Academies • United States Coast Guard Academy • United States Air Force Academy • United States Naval Academy – Annapolis • Merchant Marine Academy • United States Military Academy – West Point Competition for admission to the academies is very selective and limited. Military academy graduates receive a Bachelor of Science degree. Graduates receive regular commissions, and are required to fulfill active duty commitments. For those students who strongly desire to attend an academy but who are not offered an appointment upon high school graduation, military preparatory school appointments should be considered as well. Military prep schools are available for the Army, Navy, and Air Force Academies.
VOCATIONAL CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS What are they? These are Institutions that prepare students for semi-professional or technical employment. Typically they teach job-specific skills, devoted to training for employment. In Arizona, we have a large number of certificate programs available through the Maricopa Community College District. To see a list and their qualifications and length of program, please visit each Community College’s website.
NOTE: Be aware that private vocational/technical schools are “for profit”. Student tuition is the primary source of a private school’s funding. Be sure to compare these to the community colleges in your area for their vocational certificate programs.
What process is necessary to be admitted to the school of your choice? No matter which of the training or educational options you choose, there is a process you must follow in order to be admitted to the institution. Each type of institution may differ slightly in the admission process. It is your responsibility to know the requirements of each school in which you have an interest. Typically, the process includes: 1. Obtaining the application form ALL colleges prefer students to apply using their online application procedure. 2. Completing the application form which may include: Specific Deadline Dates, Transcripts from High School, Application fee, Housing applications, Letter of Recommendations, Essay 3. Taking required special tests for admission NOTE: Most 4-year colleges & universities require you to submit scores from either the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) or the ACT (American College Test) for scholarship and/or class placement purposes. Many of the more selective 4-year schools will ask you to submit scores from the College Board Achievement Tests as well, commonly known as the SAT II. Maricopa County Community Colleges require students to take placement tests in reading, math and English (Asset Test, Compass Test or Accuplacer). Information regarding testing and test dates for the coming year can be found in the Career Center or in any counseling office. 4. Mailing or completing the on-line application. Vocational-technical schools and community colleges – the procedure for admission is normally a simple application. State colleges and universities – admission standards are set and published. Private colleges and universities – a more detailed process is often involved. Selective colleges and universities – your admission status may not be known until after April 1 of the year you wish to enter. 5. Check your application status regularly. Most colleges will open your own web area when you apply so you can check your application status. Make sure you read the postal mail they send after you’ve applied. It will have instructions for checking your status. Arizona Universities require you to send your dual enrollment transcripts from the community college immediately after the semester you are taking the class ends. Do not wait until after high school graduation to send in dual enrollment grades.
The ultimate responsibility for completion of this process rests with the student. Counselors are a good source of information regarding the application process and are anxious to help. Make an appointment with your counselor or with Mrs. Lytle in the Career Center. Local college representatives visit our school each month, schedules are posted in the Career Corner Bulletin, Career Center and in all counseling offices.
Please note: If College application fees or SAT/ACT fees will be a financial hardship for your family, please contact your counselor for monetary assistance.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
The purpose of this section of the booklet is to provide a starting point for students who plan to continue their education beyond high school and who will need financial aid. There are people with knowledge of student financial aid procedures who can be helpful to you: your high school guidance counselor, career center and the financial aid officer at the institution you plan to attend. You must begin early and complete applications properly and on time. The following information on specific scholarships, loans and grants is as up-to-date as possible. There may be changes in conditions, availability and/or contact persons. Contact your high school counselor, the Career Center, and the financial aid officer at each institution or sponsoring agency for the most current information. The scholarships in this booklet are organized in chronological order. The deadline dates are approximate and could change from year to year. You should check with the scholarship organization directly for exact dates. The availability of many scholarships changes often from year to year, after printing of this booklet.

An inquiry to the college financial aid office is the first step in investigating a scholarship offered by a college. Interested students should carefully follow any directions provided by that office. Colleges may offer awards to students per department, example: Business, Psychology, etc. More effort may be required to investigate scholarships offered by other groups.
