Apprenticeships help companies develop a world-class, customized training model that combines work-based learning with related classroom instruction using the highest industry standards.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, apprenticeship has dramatically improved the lives, careers and opportunities for millions of workers and more than 150,000 businesses over the last 80 years, from careers in healthcare, energy, and IT, to manufacturing, transportation, and beyond.

The benefits are substantial - companies that offer apprenticeship programs can diversify their workforce, improve productivity and profitability, standardize training, reduce turnover, receive tax credits, and more. The average starting wage for apprentices is more than $60,000, and workers will earn an average of $300,000 more over their lifetime than their non-apprentice peers.
