What is a Registered Apprenticeship?
For job seekers, becoming a Registered Apprentice means you’re on the path to a rewarding career where you’ll earn a paycheck from day one - your chance to earn and learn. For businesses, starting a Registered Apprenticeship Program means you’ll build a talented workforce equipped with the skills that specifically fit your company.
FROM AN APPRENTICE
“As a Registered Apprentice, you're getting paid to go to school. You're getting paid to get a career and learn something you can go anywhere in the country with. And once I realized the benefit package – what they offered you, how they backed you up, the 401K – it was crazy not to sign up. I cannot express enough how important and good this is for somebody to do. It’s life changing.”
- Christopher Iafrate, Camblin Mechanical - Atlantic, Iowa
FROM AN EMPLOYER
“Implementing Iowa’s Registered Apprenticeship Program is the best thing we’ve ever done as a business. It’s allowed us a platform to train, recruit and think about our business growth. And now that the word’s spread, we’re seen as a quality organization with a professional training program. We wouldn’t have that without the apprenticeship. As a business owner looking to the future, I feel really good.”
