Please Explain The Connecticut Apprenticeship Program.
Apprenticeship programs in the State of Connecticut are administered by the Department of Labor through Regional Apprenticeship Representatives located throughout the state. Skilled consultants provide technical assistance, monitoring, and consulting services to qualified employers willing to take on the responsibilities and obligations of program sponsorship. Apprenticeship is a program of learning while earning. The apprentice employee has voluntarily entered into a mutual agreement with an employer regarding training. Apprenticeship can be seen as part of the conditions of work. Apprenticeship programs are available in occupations clearly identified and commonly recognized as separate and distinct trades requiring broad skills applicable throughout the industry. The Apprenticeship Index gives more detailed information on apprenticeable trades. For additional information, contact the Regional Apprenticeship Representatives in your area.
