How Apprenticeships Work
Apprenticeship combines on-the-job training and related classroom instruction. Hands-on and theoretical training prepares workers for highly skilled and specialized occupations.
Apprenticeship programs are sponsored by individual employer and/or employer associations, or by joint employer and labor groups. Participants should be employed full time by an apprenticeship sponsor while still attending classes.
