What is a Registered Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships combine classroom study with extensive on-the-job training under the supervision of a trade professional, ultimately leading to an occupational credential.
Components of Registered Apprenticeship programs
- Direct Business Involvement – Employers are the foundation of every apprenticeship program and the skills needed by their workforce are at the core.
- 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.
