Capital Community College students and alumni are eligible to apply for immediate entry into an insurance apprenticeship program that includes paid on-the-job training, tuition assistance and mentoring to prepare participants for roles in customer-facing claims positions at The Hartford.
Interested alumni and students must complete an application by April 19th for consideration during the spring semester. Contact Coordinator John C. Thomas at 860-906-5234; E-mail: JThomas@capitalcc.edu.
Last year Capital and The Hartford teamed up to offer the program that is registered with the U.S. Department of Labor, which provides tuition assistance for participating students through its American Apprenticeship Grant Initiative.
Successful completion can lead to full-time employment with The Hartford. Requirements involve completion of 61 credit hours of college coursework and 2,400 hours of paid on-the-job-training at The Hartford claims center in Windsor. Students and alumni with a minimum of 30 credit hours completed may apply. In tandem with academic study, individuals earn up to $15.50 per hour as they complete degree requirements.
For students working toward their associate degrees the curriculum includes courses in insurance-specific topics as well as critical thinking, business analytics and communications to help prepare students for future leadership roles.
Graduates will earn registered apprenticeship credentials certifying their occupational proficiency, and when they become full-time employees of The Hartford, they will be eligible for additional tuition reimbursement to complete their bachelor’s degree.
