EMPLOYER FAQ

What is registered apprenticeship?

Registered apprenticeship is an industry-driven talent development strategy that combines on-the-job experience with formal classroom learning. Registered apprenticeships are collaboratively developed and deployed through partnerships between employers, training and education providers, and the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), and are approved and registered by the U.S. DOL to ensure that programs are high-quality and high-value for apprentices and employers.

How can registered apprenticeship help employers?

Through registered apprenticeship, your company will:

  • Develop a highly-skilled workforce.
  • Reduce turnover and foster loyalty among employees.
  • Create customized, flexible training solutions to meet your needs.
  • Build a sustainable, long-term talent pipeline for your workforce.
  • Be considered for funding opportunities tied to apprenticeship.
  • When employers establish a registered apprenticeship program, they develop a world-class workforce, enhance their bottom line, and build for the future.

What industries offer registered apprenticeship?

Though apprenticeship is traditionally associated with skilled trades and manufacturing, registered apprenticeship programs are, or can be, established in nearly any industry! Emerging apprenticeship industries, like healthcare, IT, and energy are helping to broaden how employers and workers in the U.S. understand apprentices.

There are currently over 1,400 occupations recognized as “apprenticeable” by the DOL — see the full list here.
