So, you’re considering becoming an apprentice?

Registered apprenticeship is an education and employment strategy that combines on-the-job experience with formal classroom learning. Registered apprenticeships are collaboratively developed and delivered 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, ensuring that skills earned by apprentices are relevant, transferrable, and can continue to grow a reliable career after the apprenticeship has ended.

Why become an apprentice in a registered apprenticeship program?

Registered apprenticeships can be the ideal next step for recent high school, college, or university graduates, or for individuals transitioning from various career and life circumstances.

As an apprentice in a registered apprenticeship program, you will:

  • Develop new skills in an in-demand field.
  • Have a full-time job with an increasing wage during the apprenticeship.
  • Receive the investment and commitment of your employers to ensure your personal and professional growth.
  • Be supported by a mentor, an expert in your field.
  • Begin a long-term career with little or no college debt.
  • Earn a nationally-recognized apprenticeship certificate.
