Registered Apprenticeship

Recruiting and retaining skilled employees can be challenging. Apprenticeship programs reduce the need for costly recruitment programs by creating a flow of candidates who are already screened and trained. The cost of wages for apprentices is typically less than that for regular employees. Additionally, apprentices who complete a program often feel a commitment to their work and loyalty to their employer.

The California Division of Apprenticeship Standards (DAS) helps employers set up a Registered Apprenticeship (RA) program, including understanding how an apprenticeship works and learning the state standards for education and employment. A DAS Apprenticeship Consultant can help employers determine if grant sources are available to fund the RA program.
