Registered apprenticeships are customized to local industry needs and specifications.

  • The length of a Registered Apprenticeship program varies upon industry needs
  • Programs are structured with a combination of On the Job Training (OJT) Hours and supplemental related classroom instruction. The goal of related instruction is to provide apprentices with a deeper understanding of what they are learning during their OJT hours.
  • The credentials an apprentice earns while enrolled in a registered apprentice are portable and nationally recognized within their industry.
