REGISTERED APPRENTICESHIP EQUALS TRAINED EMPLOYEES
By combining on-the-job learning with related technical instruction, Registered Apprenticeship supports fully trained employees. Skill training and job-related theory create better workers to meet the company's needs.
Participating in a Registered Apprenticeship program ensures that employees are trained to industry and company standards. Additionally, if the business requires licensing, apprentices are prepared for the exam upon program completion.
Recruitment of the 21st Century
Sponsoring a Registered Apprenticeship program develops employees to contribute to your bottom line.
Employers typically experience economic and intrinsic benefits. The economic benefits are derived from paying a progressively increasing apprentice wage (usually starting at 50% of journey worker/mentor wages). Registered Apprenticeship sponsors are exempt from paying overtime to apprentices for the related instruction portion of their training if it is outside normal business hours. Many sponsors report reduced turnover equating to increased productivity and decreased training costs.
