Utilizing Registered Apprenticeship to Build Our Infrastructure
Registered Apprenticeship and pathways that lead people into apprenticeship will help ensure the next cohort of skilled workers are being trained as projects are being delivered. Additionally, Registered Apprenticeship provides an opportunity to make good jobs more accessible to populations that have been underrepresented in the infrastructure workforce including women, people of color, people with disabilities, and others.
