Connecticut residents looking to pursue a new career in a skilled trade now have a step-by-step guide to assist them.

The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection has released a 28-page guide covering topics such as what to expect in classroom learning and apprenticeships, finding the right apprenticeship for you, licensing with the DCP, and finding a job. The guide is available in seven languages.
