Why Apprenticeship?

There are a broad range of industries that are adopting and adapting Registered Apprenticeship to meet their ongoing workforce needs. Because these are tailored programs, organizations can develop a sustainable talent pipeline with the technical skills necessary for their industry. Employers are encouraged to leverage the support of industry partners to identify the resources needed to design an apprenticeship program suitable for their organization or business.

Building A Program

Considering a Registered Apprenticeship Program for your organization? We can help! If you need assistance or are interested in developing a program of your own, our team of experts are here to answer your questions and assist along the way!

Step One of Building a Program: Pick the Occupation

Identifying the occupation for which you are seeking to leverage Registered Apprenticeship is a critical step in developing your program. We have established apprenticeships in dozens of occupations in a diverse set of industries and offer training plans vetted by industry leaders.

Step Two of Building a Program: Identify Sponsors & Partners

Identify a sponsor and engage key partners, including apprenticeship offices, sponsors, educators, intermediaries, workforce development boards, and/or American Job Centers using the Partner Finder. A sponsor is any person, association, committee, or organization that operates a Registered Apprenticeship Program.

Step Three of Building a Program: Launching

After identifying the occupation and gathering potential sponsors and/or partners for your upcoming Apprenticeship program, Equus can assist in developing program standards with sustainability. These standards can be prior, existing or newly created. Once processed, your program will be nationally registered with the U.S. Department of Labor.
