Benefits of Apprenticeship

Through a registered apprenticeship program, apprentices in advanced manufacturing learn in-demand skills under the guidance of a mentor. Apprentices receive regular wage increases and may qualify for college credit. At the conclusion of the apprenticeship, they earn an industry-recognized credential from the U.S. Department of Labor.

A registered apprenticeship also benefits employers. Through apprenticeship, manufacturers can:

  • Fill skills gaps
  • Standardize training across sites
  • Improve safety and productivity
  • Reduce turnover and recruiting costs
  • Build a program customized to company needs
