Employers are the foundation of every Registered Apprenticeship program. They play an active role in building the program and remain involved every step of the way. Employers sometimes work together through industry associations, apprenticeship councils, labor-management unions, or other consortia to develop and maintain apprenticeship programs.
Employers develop an on-the-job training plan for apprentices using the identified skillsets for the occupation as a guide. On-the-job training is provided through an experienced mentor.
Registered Apprenticeship programs include related instruction that supplements on-the-job learning and provides the technical and academic competencies that apply to the job. This instruction can be delivered by an education/training provider or by the business itself.
Apprentices earn competitive wages—a paycheck from day one and incremental raises as skill levels increase.
Every graduate of a Registered Apprenticeship program receives a nationally recognized credential that certifies that the worker is fully qualified for that occupation.
