Registered Apprenticeships

The National Apprenticeship Act of 1917 and two Executive Orders in the 1930s authorized the Federal government in cooperation with state governments to oversee and develop Register Apprenticeship programs. Registered Apprenticeships must yield a nationally recognized credential upon completion. Programs are required to follow Federal and State standards while protecting the safety and welfare of apprentices. Today one of the most significant value of the DOL and State Agencies is the promotion of the apprenticeship model to both job seekers and employers.

Components of Registered Apprenticeships

On-The-Job Training

Apprentices benefit from real-world application of theory-based instruction as they work in their field. In most programs apprentices are required to complete 2000 paid hours of related work per year.

Mentoring

Apprentices work and learn under the direction of qualified personnel or mentors who are experienced in their field. Apprentices achieve journey-worker status when they complete program requirements.

Related Instruction

Apprentices receive technical training in highly skilled occupations, often in a classroom environment or through on line learning. This instruction typically leads to nationally recognized credentials.

Wage Increases

A Registered Apprenticeship provides for incremental wage increases. As an apprentice becomes more proficient, he or she earns higher wages.

Apprenticeship Training

  • Determine comfortability working in occupational conditions
  • Start job and begin orientation
  • Learn about fellow apprentices
  • Learn practical skills
  • Learn skills required to do the job safely
  • Graduate level one training
  • Continue to participate in socials and support fellow apprentices

Traditional education vs. apprenticeship

Apprenticeships assist in closing the skills gap that employers experience while reducing unemployment and providing a debt-free career path for young people as well as transitioning service members. In turn, easing the transition from school or military service to career, and remove barriers for students and veterans, including those with disabilities, who are faced with selecting between higher education and earning income.

Traditional education does not guarantee employment. Many students complete a long program to earn a certificate and are unable to find a job. Cost of tuition continues to climb and many students find themselves deep in student loan debt.

ACS apprenticeship programs first provide full-time employment. Once in your job, you participate in training both on the job and classroom. Training is sponsored by employers and do not cost the apprentices a dime.

Higher education is often a valuable partner with apprenticeship programs by providing the classroom related instruction.
