What are Apprenticeships?

Apprenticeships are industry-driven, high-quality career pathways that benefit both businesses and workers. Through apprenticeships, employers can develop and prepare their future workforce, and individuals can obtain paid work experience, classroom instruction and a portable, nationally-recognized credential. This on-the-job training benefits all involved — apprentices, businesses and the community at large –– which ultimately benefits Utah’s economy as a whole. Apprenticeships are developed in all industries, from traditional sectors like construction and manufacturing, to emerging sectors like IT and healthcare.

Why Start an Apprenticeship Program?

Apprenticeships have proven to meet business needs in all job markets. If you have positions with high turnover, an aging workforce or are facing the challenge of helping your workers keep up with industry changes, apprenticeship is a solution. Programs are developed with flexible training solutions aligned with national industry standards and your company-specific standards. You’ll see the impact where it matters most … your bottom line: higher productivity, reduced turnover, less recruitment costs and increased workplace safety.
