What are the benefits of a Registered Apprenticeship Program?

  • Financial incentives – Solar projects larger than 1MW are required to have 10% of the labor performed by qualified apprentices. That increases to 15% by 2024.
  • Effective Recruitment Tool – Attractive to job seekers looking to transition to a new industry and young workers looking to start a career in the trades. Note: Military veterans may utilize GI Bill Monthly Housing Allowance benefits to supplement their income earned as an apprentice in a RAP.
  • Retain Workers – Reduced employee turnover
  • Diversity – “Earn while you learn” model can reduce barriers for diverse candidates and credential supports advancement; Diversity goals are required for program registration
  • Demonstrate Qualification – Can be used to document worker qualification and meet licensing requirements (ex. electricians)
