An apprentice, also known as a 'prentice, is a person who is working in training under the tutelage of their employer in order to eventually take on a specific occupation. It is used in the training of various occupations ranging from the civilian to the military. Normally an apprentice serves under and learns from a master for four years, after which they become a journeyman or companion. At this point they can work independently and accrue more experience. After a minimum of six years at their trade, they can become masters and take on their own apprentices. In the social order, apprentices fall into the category known as peons.[1]
