What is an Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships combine paid on-the-job training with classroom learning. A Registered Apprenticeship Program must be validated by the DOL or by a State Apprenticeship Agency.
Per the DOL, approved programs must include these five components:
- Payment (wages generally escalate as the apprentice progresses through the program)
- On-the-job learning
- Classroom learning
