Recruiting, training and retaining talent is one of the most important things you do as an employer. The Registered Apprenticeship model allows you to take charge of building a pipeline of highly-skilled and highly-motivated workers while enhancing your bottom line.
Apprenticeships are one of the many pathways that lead to a successful career. Whether you are looking to start or make a change in your career, an apprenticeship is an “earn and learn” training model that combines on-the-job learning with related classroom instruction. Benefits include incremental wage increases, job security and a portable, nationally or industry-recognized credential, certificate or degree.

When Ociana Davis applied for a software developer apprenticeship through Apprenti more than a year ago, she didn’t have any development experience. However, once her apprenticeship started with Franklin Covey, her skills grew through education, mentoring and on-the-job training. “Now she is a really solid dev that has both frontend and backend experience,” said Dave Sabour, Director of Digital Platforms for Franklin Covey. Davis’ apprenticeship allowed her to get her foot in the door and begin her career with an upward trajectory. Watch Ociana's story.
The Utah Glass Association (UGA) recently launched a four-year glazier apprenticeship program that allows glaziers to earn a journeyman certification recognized nationwide. Approved by the U.S. Department of Labor, the program incorporates National Glass Association’s MyGlassClass.com courses, as well as education and life-skill classes developed by UGA. While the apprentice classes of 2022 and 2023 are at capacity, UGA will begin accepting applications for the class of 2024 in Spring 2021.
