Registered Apprenticeship in New York State (Apprenticeship Booklet)

Registered apprenticeship is a formal training relationship between an employer and an employee. It is for a specific period of time. During this time, the worker or apprentice learns a trade.

It combines hands-on work experience and classroom instruction. This leads to professional, independent, skilled workers.

Are you part of a business or an association that wants to:

  • Have a skilled workforce?
  • Reduce employee turnover?
  • Improve employer/employee relationships?
  • Train workers in the latest technologies without losing valuable production time?
  • Gain respect in your community as an industry leader for providing employment and training opportunities?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then registered apprenticeship training may be for you.
