Apprenti and Epic Games have announced their apprenticeship program ...

Apprenti and Epic Games have joined forces to establish a first-of-its-kind Unreal Engine apprenticeship program. Epic Games will begin by matching a $100,000 grant from the Department of Labor.

CG Spectrum, a college for digital art and animation, will offer access to Epic Games'' unreal authorized training centers in September 2021.

CG Spectrums agrees that this collaboration with Epic and Apprenti will enable us to collaborate effectively with Epics customers and industry leaders to inspire and train creators, while also using the Apprenti model to increase access to expert development and coaching across these industries.

Apprenti is considering additional investments to develop a national registered training program. The hopeful program will focus on key roles within the gaming, automotive, and architecture industries.

As the demand for real-time skills rises, apprenticeship programs are able to offer an effective solution to the tech shortage, but they also have the potential to enrich lives of people and communities, according to Epic Games. This partnership is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the potential industry-transcending impact, and we couldn''t be more thrilled for the future.

3D skills are in high demand

In 2021, the demand for real-time 3D skills surpasses the average Information Technology skills by 50% and is increasing 10% faster than the global job market. The games industry alone added more than 30,000 new entry level roles.

The content used by the gaming industry must include the opinions of its customers. It''s vital that game developers reflect the diversity of end-users, according to Apprentis Jennifer Carlson. Besides this, an apprenticeship based on Unreal Engine skills will provide a pathway to careers not only in gaming, but in many sectors such as film, television, advertising, and manufacturing. We are proud to partner with Epic Games and help underrepresented individuals develop lucrative careers in interactive media.

Apprentis is a non-profit that has established internships across the United States, including Amazon, Paypal, Wayfair, and others. Over 85% of Apprentis apprenticeships are from underrepresented organizations and non-traditional backgrounds.
