Orthotic & Prosthetic Technician Orthotics and Prosthetics are the rapidly changing fields involving the fabrication of orthopedic braces and artificial limbs. This industry provides vital services to the rehabilitation medicine community and to individuals with disabilities, including veterans, persons with vascular diseases, and diabetics.
Orthotics is the designing, fitting and manufacturing of orthopedic braces for individuals with disabling conditions of the spine and extremities. Prosthetics is the designing, fitting and manufacturing of artificial limbs for people with limb loss. These individual disciplines are traditionally combined as a single industry because they share similar scientific backgrounds and manufacturing processes.

Apprenticeship programs offer college-level education, a salary and medical benefits at the same time, while the apprentice learns a skilled trade from journey-level craftspersons on job sites. Other than buying tools and work clothes, usually apprentices do not have to pay for their training.
You must apply to be considered for admission to an apprenticeship. These qualities enhance a person's chances to be admitted to an apprenticeship: strong academic record including at least a high school diploma or GED, excellent attendance at school and/or employment, previous employment (especially that's related to the type of work the apprenticeship trains for), supportive letters of recommendation, a "clean" legal record, and a "clean" substance abuse record.
