Building a Registered Apprenticeship with your business has many advantages - for you and for your employees. Investing in Registered Apprenticeship means a commitment to the future success of your organization.

Benefits for your bottom line

Registered Apprenticeship programs aid in recruiting new personnel, and often support the activities of your human resources department. Investing in the future of your employees can strengthen their loyalty to your company. Teaching employees new skills and providing incremental raises increase productivity, decrease turnover and save your company money spent on training. In addition, Registered Apprenticeship will help your employees become nationally certified, which will ensure a quality product and knowledgeable employees.

The Office of Apprenticeship will work with you to create a flexible training program appropriate for your business. Registered programs range in size from one apprentice to hundreds depending on the employer. As your workforce needs change, we will help you adjust your training curriculum or design a new program if necessary.
