    Announcing New Portal

    Over the last three years, U.S. employers have added over 150,000 new apprentices, helping to build on the 80-year history of Registered Apprenticeship. This tried and true training model is now being expanded and transformed into an innovative approach being put to the test in classrooms, labs, and boardrooms throughout the country.
