Registered Apprenticeship is a proven model of job preparation that combines paid on-the-job learning with related instruction to progressively increase workers’ skill levels and wages.

It is an employer-driven model that provides an effective way for employers to recruit, train and retain highly skilled workers. As an “earn and learn” strategy, Registered Apprenticeship offers job seekers immediate employment that offers advancement along a career path and a nationally-recognized credential.
