WHAT IS APPRENTICESHIP?
Apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway where employers can develop and prepare their future workforce, and individuals can obtain paid work experience, classroom instruction, and a portable, nationally-recognized credential.
There are now two types of apprenticeship programs that employers can offer:
A Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) is a proven model of apprenticeship that has been validated by the Department of Labor or a State Apprenticeship Agency.
An Industry-Recognized Apprenticeship Program (IRAP) is a new, customizable model of apprenticeship that will be validated by a proven industry accreditor.
