Our Mission Registered Apprenticeship mission statement should go here. I'm not sure how long it will be, so I'm just filling in some words.
Registered Apprenticeship is an innovative work-based earn-and-learn model that meets national standards for registration with the U.S. Department of Labor and the Kentucky Office of Apprenticeship. It is a formal system of employee training that combines on-the-job learning with related technical instruction. It is designed to produce highly skilled workers who are fully competent in all aspects of an occupation, including knowledge, skill and proficiency of the job. With apprenticeship training, there is a written contract between the apprentice and the sponsor (business), approved by and registered with the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the U.S. Department of Labor, that specifies the length of training, school hours, and outlines the skills of the trade to be learned and the wages the apprentice will receive. Kentucky’s apprenticeship program allows employers to design their own training program that provides apprentices with specific skills, training and job-related instruction tailored to the company’s needs.
