Arapahoe Community College (ACC) collaborated with Centura Health (the largest healthcare employer in Colorado with 21,000 employees), the regional federal workforce center (Arapahoe/Douglas Works), and the Greater Metro Denver Healthcare Partnership in 2018 to co-create the largest registered health apprenticeship program in Colorado. Medical assistant apprentices work 32 hours a week at a clinic, received online, on-the-job learning, lab-based related instruction, and pass their national exam within six months of the one-year apprenticeship. Three years later, ACC brought on another major provider (Health One/HCA), and has served more than 70 apprentices in this growing program. Fifty percent all apprentices are students of color and have retained at equitable rates. The program has yielded an 84% graduation rate, and of those who graduate, more than 90% have retained with their health care provider after one year. ACC leveraged state and federal DOL grants and private philanthropic resources to assist with program start-up funding. Due to the success of the program, ACC recently received a $500,000 gift from Centura Health to invest in future apprenticeship programs and scholarships.
