The Apprentice Training Program is the framework in which an individual undergoes a reengineering of their economic career development, educational career, socialization, and psychological development. The process is initiated by learning a program that requires on-the-job learning coupled with classroom theory learning. A progression of wages is paid and a contract is required.
The Division of Apprentice Standards (DAS) monitors all registered apprentice training programs across the Commonwealth and ensures that apprentices are laboring in safe working environments, are paid correctly, and are receiving both on-the-job training as well as related education classes.
Some of the programs that DAS is involved in include:
- Conducting educational meetings with cities and towns, vocational schools, veterans and the National Guard
- Developing a Marine Tech apprenticeship for the Massachusetts Marine Industry
- Working with the Massachusetts One Stop Career Center System
