A registered apprenticeship is an industry-driven and high-quality career pathway. It combines both On-the-Job Training (OJT) and a Classroom Training (CRT) program. Employers can develop and prepare their future workforce, and individuals can obtain paid work experience, classroom instruction, and a portable, nationally recognized credential.
