Apprenticeships

The registered apprenticeship model gives employers an opportunity to build a workforce trained to meet their specific skill needs. Apprenticeships offer a flexible training solution, aligned with national and company-specific standards resulting in a well-skilled, well-rounded worker ready for a professional career in the company.

Benefits for Businesses

Registered Apprenticeships help businesses thrive.  For every dollar spent on apprenticeship, employers get an average of $1.47 back in increased productivity (U.S. Department of Labor).

Apprenticeships:

  • Develop highly-skilled, highly productive employees
  • Reduce turnover rates
  • Increase productivity
  • Lower recruitment costs
  • Increase safety in the workplace
  • Create a more diverse workforce and new pool of workers
