Become a Sponsor

A Sponsor may be a company, a group of companies, a public agency, or a union.
Here's what you need to do if you're interested in becoming a sponsor:

Potential sponsors must work with the Bureau of Apprenticeship & Training (BAT) or State Apprenticeship Council's (SAC) field representatives to develop a set of apprenticeship training standards which include an on-the-job learning outline, related classroom instruction curriculum and the apprenticeship program operating procedures. The program will then be registered if it meets the federal requirements.

Benefits to Employer Sponsors include:

> Attract high quality, motivated applicants
> Reduced employee turnover
> Enhanced problem-solving capability
> Increased productivity
> Improved employee morale
> Assurance of versatile, well-trained employees
> Lower production costs
> Investment in a dedicated staff
> Classroom knowledge brought to your workplace
