Registered Apprenticeship

Registered Apprenticeship is a unique, flexible employee development system.  Registered Apprenticeship is an employer-driven model that combines on-the-job mentored learning with job-related instruction.  Registered Apprenticeship is an industry-proven approach to preparing workers for jobs that meet business needs for a highly skilled workforce.

Employment: The Employer is at the center of the model – Apprenticeship programs are designed to ensure that apprentices master every skill and have all the knowledge needed to be fully proficient for a specific occupation.  Continued employment is the end goal and a benefit for the employer and the apprentice alike.
Knowledge Gain: Classroom Training / Related Instruction (150 hours per year)
Knowledge Application: On the job application of classroom taught skills and knowledge (2,000 hours per year/Work Process)
Wage & Competency Increase: Apprentices begin a program at a percentage of the average wage for their occupation. As they gain skill, wages increase.
Industry Recognized Credential: Those who complete program requirements receive a certificate of completion and an industry recognized credential. Apprenticeship programs are designed to ensure that apprentices master every skill and have all the knowledge needed to be fully proficient for a specific occupation.

Retention: 91% of Registered Apprenticeship program completers retain employment.
