What is a Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP)?

Registered Apprenticeship Programs (RAPs) aim to prepare workers for jobs while meeting the needs of businesses for a highly skilled workforce. It is an “earn while you learn” model that combines on-the-job learning under the supervision of a mentor, job experience, and classroom/online related instruction.

  • Paid Job: Apprentices are paid employees who produce high-quality work while they learn skills that enhance their employers' needs. There are progressive increases in an apprentice’s skills and wages.
  • On-the-Job Learning: Develops skilled workers through structured learning in a work setting.
  • Classroom Learning: Improves job-related skills through instruction in a classroom setting (virtual or in-person).
  • Mentorship: Provides apprentices with the support of a skilled worker to assist and enhance critical hands-on learning.
  • Credentials: Offers a portable, nationally-recognized credential to be issued at the completion of the program.
