What is a Registered Apprenticeship?

A Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) stands as a robust and comprehensive training model designed to assist employers in the transformation and cultivation of entry-level employees into highly skilled professionals. RAPs serve as a strategic tool for creating talent pipelines and retaining experienced and skilled workers.

The foundation of a Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) lies in a work-based learning system that caters to workforce requirements by equipping individuals with the necessary skills for various trades. This is achieved through a combination of paid On-the-Job Learning (OJL) and Related Technical Instruction (RTI).

Typically, most RAPs are completed within a 1-4 year timeframe, with specific durations determined in accordance with guidelines set forth by the United States Department of Labor (USDOL). Throughout the program, the apprentice will engage in Related Technical Instruction (RTI), which may include online coursework, while working in collaboration with a skilled tradesperson from the employer partner during the On-the-Job Learning (OJL) component. This journey leads to the attainment of a degree, certification, and/or license, alongside the acquisition of a nationally recognized USDOL credential in their chosen skilled trade.

Information for Employers

Employers worldwide are increasingly adopting a more strategic approach to workforce development by investing in a unique breed of employees. These individuals hail from diverse backgrounds, driven by a strong internal motivation that sets them apart. They aren’t merely seeking employment or training; they aspire to launch their careers within your organization today. They’re eager to step into roles spanning manufacturing, healthcare, education, information technology, public safety, industry, and business sectors. Their goal is to glean expertise from professionals like you as they fervently pursue their passions, all while contributing to your business’s growth.

While some might label these individuals as ambitious or self-starters, we prefer to call them apprentices. Apprenticeships not only enhance your business but also have the potential to bolster your bottom line significantly.
