Registered Apprenticeship is a training model that offers individuals the opportunity to become a skilled worker in a trade/occupation through a combination of paid on-the-job training and related classroom instruction. Registered Apprenticeship is an “earn while you learn” program where individuals are hired by an employer (sponsor of a NYS Registered Apprenticeship program) and work under the close supervision of a skilled worker in that trade/occupation. The length of program varies depending on the trade/occupation, but is typically between 1 and 5 years. Once apprentices successfully complete the program, they receive a certificate of completion from the New York State Department of Labor, which is a portable, nationally recognized credential.
