Let's talk about apprenticeships.
Apprenticeships are earn-and-learn programs registered by the Department of Labor, typically lasting 12 months. Apprentices are full-time employees, who are earning while they’re learning. They work through structured training to build technical and professional skills on the job.

Registered Apprenticeship programs help businesses develop highly-skilled employees, reduce turnover rates, increase productivity and lower the cost of recruitment.
Apprentices can be hired as contractors, subject to the requirements of the Registered Apprenticeship Standard which you will adopt by signing the Employer Acceptance Agreement.
In most jobs, people are hired for the skills they’ve already acquired; in apprenticeships they are hired for the skills they will acquire – at a reduced wage that will increase as they gain competency. Apprentices take classes while they are working, combining technical knowledge with on-the-job learning. At the end of the apprenticeship, they earn industry-recognized certifications and a nationally recognized credential from the U.S. Department of Labor
Our programs typically last 12-18 months.
