Skilled Trades Partnerships

Union Trades at BETA

Earn a degree during your apprenticeship

BETA, Butler's Business Education and Training Analysis group, works with Wichita & south central Kansas area Unions to help round out educational offerings for their skilled employees. The result is a two-year degree from Butler Community College with credit from your apprenticeship. 

Our union partnerships are part of the college's Corporate Studies program. Butler was one of the first in the state to offer an Associate Degree in Corporate Studies to assist trade school participants and apprentices in obtaining their two-year degree. This degree program is unique as it can be tailored to any industry. 

If you are interested in an apprenticeship program or are a union trades worker, please work with your union first to get started.
