Registered Apprenticeship Programs

Apprenticeships are a proven solution for businesses to recruit, train and retain highly skilled workers. Through apprenticeships, job seekers earn wages while learning workplace skills, working toward a career and avoiding student loan debt.

Unlike traditional postsecondary education programs, apprenticeships are designed by and for the employer with a specialized focus on the unique needs of a specific job.

Key Components of Registered Apprenticeships

To ensure Registered Apprenticeships are high-quality and meet the needs of both employers and apprentices, programs must have these elements:

  1. Business Involvement: Employers are the foundation of every apprenticeship program.
  2. Structured On-The-Job Training: Apprentices receive training from an experienced mentor.
  3. Technical Instruction: Online, at the job site, classroom based or a combination.
  4. Wage Increases: Apprentices receive increases in wages with demonstrated gains in skills and knowledge.
  5. Certificate of Apprenticeship Completion: Industry-recognized credential certifying apprentices are qualified for the job.
