Become an Apprentice Program Sponsor


Apprenticeship programs are empoyer-driven models
that combine on-the-job learning with related classroom instruction that increases an apprentice's skill level and wages.

For many occupations, there are model programs and instruction curricula, however, program sponsors have wide freedom to design their program to teach the occupational competencies necessary to their company. Your Apprenticeship Training Reprentative can provide technical assistance on program design.

DLT can also help connect you with workforce development supports. Contact the Aprrenticeship Liaison via email RA.liaison@dlt.ri.gov or call (401) 462-7839 for questions and assistance with sponsoring an apprenticeship program.
