Benefits:

  • Some registered apprenticeship programs also have dual accreditation through post-secondary institutions which apply credit for apprenticeship completion towards an Associate Degree.
  • A progressively increasing schedule of wages is based on the journeyworker’s hourly wage of the apprentice’s occupation. These increases occur with satisfactory progress in both related instruction and on-the-job training until wages reach 85 to 90 percent of the rate paid the journeyworker in the occupation.
  • Upon completing a one to five year (2,000 hours to 10,000 hours) apprenticeship, the worker receives an Apprenticeship Completion Certificate and is recognized as a qualified journeyworker nationwide. This Certificate is one of the oldest, most basic, and most highly portable industry credentials in use today. The Certificate is issued by a federally approved State Apprenticeship Council or Agency or, in those States not having such an agency, by the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training.
  • Registered apprentices/trainees pay substantially reduced tuition fees for attendance at related instruction classes held in community colleges or technical colleges.
  • Registered apprentices/trainees are covered by state industrial insurance while in attendance at related instruction classes.
  • Eligible veterans receive VA educational benefits while participating in an approved program.
