The Apprentice feature is part of some of our themes and it is designed to help you create high-quality course and membership content.
Note that Apprentice is not a membership pluign or feature. There are many plugins available that let you protect certain parts of your website, make them only accessible to members and charge money for the membership (e.g. S2Member, Paid Memberships Pro, MemberMouse, WishList Member and many others).
Apprentice is not meant to replace any of these plugins. Instead, it is all about how you present and structure your content within a member’s area. Whether you want to create a simple, but professional looking member’s page with download links and resources or you want to create a fully-featured course with multimedia lessons, multiple categories and more, Apprentice is for you.
