Apprenticeships For Job Seekers


Idaho has partnered with the U.S. Department of Labor Registered Apprenticeship system to manage all of its apprenticeship programs.

What is Registered Apprenticeship?

Registered Apprenticeship is a highly flexible training and workforce development model that combines on-the-job learning, related instruction and paid work experience. Apprenticeship will prepare and train our work force to meet industry demands and deliver on the promise to hire Idahoans first!

The construction industry is just one component of apprenticeable industries that also includes advanced manufacturing, automotive, healthcare, information technology and geospatial technology. Unlike a four-year degree program at a university where you pay, apprenticeship pays you while you train for well-paying jobs with promising futures.

Registered Apprenticeship:

  • Is one of the oldest and most portable industry credentials, which makes you eligible to work anywhere you can land a job for which you qualify
  • Offers wage progression on an increasing scale
  • Provides on-the-job learning industry driven skills that make you more competitive in the labor market
  • Provides an opportunity to convert completed registered apprenticeship training into college credit and degrees at participating colleges and other postsecondary institutions
  • Offers training and certifications that meet industry standards
