Registered Apprenticeship (RA) is an evidence-based workforce program that combines OJT with related instruction, allowing workers to learn the practical and theoretical aspects of a skilled occupation. Job seekers receive immediate employment opportunities that offer career advancement through Registered Apprenticeship. Upon graduation, apprentices earn credentials that are nationally-recognized and training that may be applied toward future education endeavors. Employers drive this model, which incorporates industry input into the development of training standards that can be customized by participating businesses.
