As part of a company-wide initiative to provide our local community and existing Team Members with access to valuable workplace training and career opportunities, Halifax Health is proud to unveil its newly launched Apprenticeship Program, following approval by the Florida Department of Education.

This exciting new designation allows existing – and future – Team Members to explore career paths such as Nursing, Coding, Pharmacy Tech and more. The Apprenticeship program was designed with the overarching goal of continuing to develop a highly-skilled workforce. As noted by Kim Fulcher, Human Resources, Sr. Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, “Work-based learning in a hands-on environment opens the door to limitless possibilities.”

Using a systematically structured process, apprentices receive tools and training specific to their focus area, gaining valuable experience and education in a supportive work environment, allowing them to work alongside experts in fields that they might not have otherwise considered.

Since opening our doors in 1928, Halifax Health has been committed to creating a workplace culture centered on Team Member growth and development. The flagship concept of “Earn While You Learn” presents individuals in the workplace with a unique opportunity to acquire new skills and earn a living, while simultaneously embarking on an exciting new career path.

Apprentices receive the following:
• Relevant job skills
• Hands-on training
• Mentorship
• Academic scholarships
• Relevant curriculum and certification
• Monetary compensation
• Future career opportunities
• U.S. Department of Labor Certificate of Completion

With all these great benefits, you can have the confidence in knowing that you are working towards becoming an expert in the field of your choosing, while being part of an organization invested in your future growth and success.
