It’s industry-led. Industries represented by registered apprenticeships vet the programs to ensure they meet industry standards, and that apprentices are trained for high-skill, in-demand jobs.  

The jobs are paid, and apprentices earn progressive increases as they build new skills and become more productive. 

Mentors and structured on-the-job training guide apprentices. 

Classroom training supplements the on-the-job training apprentices are offered. 

Diversity, equity and inclusion are factors in programs’ development and implementation. Programs are designed to reflect the communities in which they operate. 

Quality and safety protections are built in. Apprentices are trained in safe practices.  

Credentials recognized throughout the industry are awarded to apprentices who finish their program.
