Registered Apprenticeship

It Pays – It Works

Who is Apprenticeship for?

Whether you are looking for your first job, a better job, or your dream job, the earn-while-you learn model of Registered Apprenticeship can help you get there.

Apprenticeship is open to anyone the age of 16 or older. Apprenticeship is for High School students, career-switchers, veterans, military dependents, business start-ups, returning citizens, emerging industries, dislocated workers, expanding companies, immigrants, individuals with disabilities, family businesses, relocating corporations, low-income individuals – all who wish to contribute are welcome.

Most industries support occupations that are considered “apprenticeable”.

Throughout the Commonwealth, Registered Apprenticeship Consultants stand ready to assist Employers and apprentices.  Employers seeking to adopt Registered Apprenticeship intentionally and voluntarily agree to the premises of the model as an ideal way to train their talent in a specific occupation.

What else do you need to know?

  • Apprentices are employees on the payroll and must be paid at least minimum wage
  • Apprentices are mentored on the jobsite by subject matter experts
  • Apprentices participate in approved Related Technical Instruction
  • Apprentices must be kept safe on the jobsite
  • Apprentices are rewarded as they gain skills with scheduled wage increases of the Employer/Sponsor’s choosing

After an Employer/Sponsor has fully registered with their local Registered Apprenticeship Consultant, it is the responsibility of the Employer to recruit and select their own apprentices. The Registered Apprenticeship Consultant will assist with the next step of registering and coaching the apprentice on how to log hours, maintain Related Technical Instruction participation and generally succeed in their Registered Apprenticeship opportunity on behalf of the Employer/Sponsor.

      Related Technical Instruction (RTI)

      One of most important features of any Registered Apprenticeship (RA) program is the Related Technical Instruction (RTI) component.

      RTI is the required education portion of any apprenticeship. RA staff will collaborate with sponsors to curate specialized instruction to meet these requirements.
