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 delivered through partnerships between employers, training and education providers, and the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), who approve and register apprenticeship programs

There are many benefits for employers who implement registered apprenticeship programs. Through registered apprenticeship, you will:

  • Develop a highly-skilled workforce
  • Diversify your workforce
  • Improve productivity, profitability, and your bottom line
  • Reduce turnover and foster loyalty among employees
  • Receive tax credits and employee tuition benefits in participating states
  • Create customized, flexible training solutions to meet your needs
  • Build a sustainable, long-term talent pipeline for your workforce
  • Hold your employees (apprentices) accountable to a high standard of work
  • Be a part of a growing national movement towards smart and effective talent development and retention strategy!

When you establish a registered apprenticeship program, you develop a world-class workforce and enhance your company’s bottom line.
