an established program with a few simple steps

It is just amazing, as a small business owner, to work with WIN. WIN has the experience and the know-how it makes it easier for a small business to move through the process. As a small company, it sounds like a good idea to launch an apprenticehip, but it feels like a steep mountain to climb when you are limited on resources. With WIN’s help, I would say pursue it!

The WIN Intermediary Program will

Share

Registered apprenticeship program fundamentals and best practices with employers to seek funding opportunities, understand industry standards and workforce development to grow and expand careers in your workplace. This includes registered apprenticeship program definitions and processes, U.S. DOL Office of Apprenticeship rules and regulations along with sample “training plans”, which are already approved!

Build

A customized apprenticeship program to meet the employer’s needs! The WIN Intermediary is customized to meet each employer “where they are at”. This includes creating on-the-job training plans (work process schedules), working with educational partners to create relevant education outlines such as related technical instruction (RTI), as well as suggest wage scales using Labor Market Data.

Certify

Once created all documents required for U.S. DOL certification (Appendix A and D) will be submitted on behalf of the employer. The WIN Intermediary will act as the liaison between the employer and DOL providing updates as needed and negotiating all necessary changes/adjustments to the appendixes and notifying the employer upon completion.

Manage

Once certified, the WIN Intermediary will track the apprenticeship program on behalf of the employer by entering the company and apprentice information into the U.S. Department of Labor’s database, tracking the apprentices’ progress through on-the-job training, education, and wage bumps, train apprentices and managers on the use of the Apprenticeship Records Tracker (ART) software maintain all records, conduct U.S. Department of Labor audits, share current Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Plan regulations while maintaining necessary records to be in compliance.
