Information technology (IT) companies and businesses in sectors with significant IT requirements face complex workforce challenges keeping up with the demands of rapid technological advancements. Registered Apprenticeship is a proven solution for recruiting, training, and retaining world-class technology talent in good, quality jobs. In 2023, there were 6,300 registered apprentices served in the IT industry, a 221 percent increase over the past five years. 

“As a cutting-edge IT services provider, we are regularly challenged with finding wellqualified talent in our area. Through our Internetworking Associate Apprenticeship Program, we’ve been able to design a program that educates and trains technicians in our niche technology field. We have had incredible success with this program and see it as an integral business mechanism for hiring talent into our organization and training them the Atrion way. We look forward to continuing this success and expanding our program to reach more talented individuals.”

Competency-Based Occupational Frameworks

In collaboration with the Urban Institute, we offer national frameworks for occupations in this industry that are consensus based, meaning they are drafted in cooperation with employers, educators, and other workforce and training experts. Employers and businesses can use these frameworks to fast-track the development of their registered apprenticeships. The frameworks are competency based rather than time based, meaning that abilities are emphasized over memorized knowledge or skills. The result is high-quality, competency-based occupational frameworks (CBOFs) that are freely available for all to use. CBOFs are available for the following occupations:
