Explore Registered Apprenticeship

Registered apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway where employers can develop and prepare their future workforce, and individuals can obtain paid work experience, receive progressive wage increases, classroom instruction, and a portable, nationally-recognized credential. 

It’s different from other types of workplace training programs in several ways:

  • Industry Led – Programs are industry-vetted and approved to ensure alignment with industry standards and that apprentices are trained for highly skilled, high-demand occupations.
  • Paid Job – Registered Apprenticeships are jobs! Apprentices earn progressive wage as their skills and productivity increase.
  • Structured On-the-Job Learning/Mentorship – Programs provide structured on-the-job training to prepare for a successful career, which includes instruction from an experienced mentor.
  • Supplemental Education – Apprentices are provided supplemental classroom education based on the employers' unique training needs to ensure quality and success.
  • Diversity – Programs are designed to reflect the communities in which they operate through strong non-discrimination, anti-harassment, and recruitment practices to ensure access, equity, and inclusion.
  • Quality & Safety – Apprentices are afforded worker protections while receiving rigorous training to equip them with the skills they need to succeed and the proper training and supervision they need to be safe.
  • Credentials – Apprentices earn a portable, nationally recognized credential within their industry. The length of a Registered Apprenticeship program can vary depending on the employer, complexity of the occupation, industry, and the type of program.
