Who we serve

We work with employers and other organizations that manage registered apprenticeship programs in traditional and expansion industries, including technology, healthcare and advanced manufacturing.

DAS does not conduct training or place apprentices in jobs. But we monitor training programs across the state to ensure apprentices are working in safe environments, are fairly compensated, and receive both on-the-job training as well as related education.
