Apprenticeship training is distinguished from other types of workplace training by several factors:
(1) Apprenticeships are jobs! Apprentices earn wages from their employers during training;
(2) Apprenticeship programs provide on-the-job learning and job-related classroom training;
(3) On-the-job learning is conducted in the work setting under the direction of a mentor(s); and
(4) Training results in an industry-recognized and portable credential.
