Registered apprenticeships are formalized career training programs that offer a combination of structured on-the-job training, obtained from employers, and related technical instruction, obtained from schools. Apprenticeship training standards are industry-driven; an industry or program sponsor determines the skill requirements needed to build and sustain a quality workforce.
Over time, apprentices are provided the diversity and complexity of training that lead to becoming highly skilled in their chosen occupations. Apprentices work and learn under the direction of experienced journey workers. As they gain skills, they are compensated through an increase in wages. When the apprenticeship is complete, the apprentice will be eligible for a Certificate of Completion of Apprenticeship from The United States Department of Labor Office of Apprenticeship.
