Technical fields often entail hands-on work. Apex programs are designed to balance both industry theory and hands-on instruction. Students often enjoy working hands-on in shop class while applying what they learn in theory class.



Apex students can complete their training in as little as 7 months. Many of our students express a desire to enter the field quickly. This program length means many students can move through their program at a pace that works for them—while fast-tracking their time in school, compared to a two-year community college or four-year university.

By offering training in 7 months, Apex tries to help minimize disruptions for students who juggle busy work schedules with family commitments.


You’re pursuing hands-on training schools because you’re ready for a new career. By completing an Apex program, you show that you’re ready to start an entry-level job in your field. Our job placement assistance team in NYC will help you search for career options that fit your training and goals.


One of the many Apex benefits is its central Greater NYC location in Long Island City, Queens. Students commute to Apex by car or the nearby subway lines which include the 7, N, W, R, E, M and G.
