Need Quality Employees?
Fill the Talent Pool with Apprenticeships
Apprentices work and train from day one, which helps employersc address two problems at once: shortage of skilled workers and the ongoing need for a highly skilled workforce.
• Blend training with work and productivity.
• Help you attract quality workers and tailor employee training to fit your needs.
• Provide an internal career ladder to promote your current workers.
Manufacturing, energy, information technology and healthcare are prime industries for apprenticeship programs. Apprenticeship is an effective solution in any occupation that involves progressive attainment of manual, mechanical or technical skills, and knowledge which meets industry standards for that occupation.
An apprenticeship is a formal, on-the-job training program that typically has five components:
1. Employer involvement
2. On-the-job training
3. Related instruction
4. Paid work experience
5. Award of a nationally recognized industry credential
