Anti-Harassment Training

Providing required anti-harassment training to apprentices and those who work with them can contribute to the establishment of a safe, welcoming and fair environment. The apprenticeship Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) regulations require sponsors to provide anti-harassment training to apprentices and other individuals, including mentors/journey-level workers, who regularly work with apprentices. The training may be provided in person or virtually. Whichever way the training is delivered, it must include active participation by trainees. Sponsors must maintain documentation of the anti-harassment training provided.

Training Resources

While sponsors may develop their own training that meets the requirements of the EEO regulations, the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship has developed a set of resources that sponsors may customize and use to provide anti-harassment training. Read the Guide to Using the Anti-Harassment Training Program for instructions on using these materials.

Sponsors may wish to distribute these documents to appropriate employees to supplement the training:
