The transformative power of apprenticeships.

For Employers

Without an employer, there is no apprenticeship!

Apprentices are full-time W2 employees held to the same conduct and professional standards as all other employees. They participate in a minimum of 144 off-the-job training hours through self-paced online blended or in-person training directly related to their job and 2,000 on-the-job hours within a one-year program.

Apprentices apply for open positions and need to have “day one skills” or meet a minimum certification, training, or experience level requested by the employer to hit the ground running.

Apprentices are hired at a lower wage than a fully qualified regular hire. Their pay increases as they enhance their skill set and master the competencies that are outlined within the program. After a successful program, the apprentice receives the full salary and a nationally recognized certificate of completion from the Department of Labor. They continue with that employer on a regular full-time basis.
