What is a Registered Apprenticeship?

Registered Apprenticeship is a highly flexible “earn while you learn” training model for employment that pays more as a worker (apprentice) reaches higher productivity levels. In addition to rewarding performance, Registered Apprenticeship combines employer-driven job-related instruction with extensive on-the-job learning under the supervision of a trade professional. After completing a Registered Apprenticeship, the apprentice receives a nationally-recognized occupational credential that communicates the standards and high level of training that their employer provides.

Components of Registered Apprenticeship programs

  • Direct Employer Involvement:Employers are the foundation of every apprenticeship program and the skills needed by their workforce are at the core.
  • Structured On-the-Job Training:Every apprenticeship program includes structured on the-job-training from an experienced mentor.
  • Related Instruction:Apprentices receive related instruction on the technical and academic competencies that apply to the job.
  • Rewards for Skills Gains:Apprentices receive progressive wage increases as their skills and knowledge increase.
  • National Occupational Credential:Every graduate of a Registered Apprenticeship program receives a nationally-recognized credential.
