Apprenticeship Programs

Though traditionally associated with labor unions, apprenticeship programs can be implemented in nonunion environments as well. Programs can be small or large, accommodating one to hundreds depending on the employer’s needs.

Registered Apprenticeship is a national system that offers on-the-job training in many of today's sought-after careers through partnerships with businesses like yours. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) regulates apprenticeship programs, which are governed by the National Apprenticeship Act of 1937, also known as the Fitzgerald Act. The regulations for registered apprenticeship programs were revised in 2008.
