Registered Apprenticeship

Apprenticeship connects job seekers looking to learn new skills with employers looking for qualified workers. Employers, employer associations, and joint labor-management organizations, known collectively as apprenticeship sponsors, provide apprentices with instruction that reflects industry needs.

Apprentices receive paid on-the-job learning and academic instruction that equip them with the portable skill sets needed to advance in their chosen field. The result is workers with industry-driven training and employers with a competitive edge.

How it Works in Construction

Construction workers often enter the field as unskilled helpers, and work closely with an experienced professional to learn a trade. Apprenticeships are primarily obtained through a trade union and can involve a classroom element as well as hands-on learning. Some organizations also have student chapters at colleges and universities with construction management programs nationwide and construction-related degree programs.
