Pre-apprenticeship programs are defined as a program designed to prepare individuals to
enter and succeed in a Registered Apprenticeship program and has a documented
partnership with at least one, if not more Registered Apprenticeship program(s). Registered
Apprenticeship programs must meet State and Federal standards and be registered by the
United States Department of Labor’s Office of Apprenticeship. Registered apprenticeships
are programs designed to move an apprentice from a low or no skill entry-level position to
full occupational proficiency. A Registered Apprenticeship program is sponsored by an
individual business or an employer association and may be partnered with a labor
organization through a collective bargaining agreement. Upon finishing the training program,
an apprentice earns a Completion of Registered Apprenticeship certificate, an industry
issued, nationally recognized credential that validates proficiency in an occupation.
