Building a Skilled Workforce in the 21st CenturyHaving skilled workers is critical to the success of any business. As we progress in the 21st century, this need will become even more critical. By participating in registered apprenticeship, employers can build a dynamic, self-empowered workforce that will lead their business into the future.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires 150 hours each year of related technical instruction, which must be mastered by an apprentice in order to successfully complete the program. Apprentices must coordinate with their place of employment prior to enrolling in related training. The listing of related training facilities provided is organized by region.
A Sponsor Verification form is proof that a company has a valid apprentice-training program with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The original form (on state letterhead with a raised seal) is required at the time the bid is submitted, and each form is job-specific.
There are over 850 occupations in a wide range of industries that can be sponsored through apprenticeship training, 101 of which are currently registered with 452 Massachusetts employers. Today's apprentices become the supervisors and leaders of tomorrow.
