Combining a customized education and career path for your employees is a proven method for success. For employers who are struggling to find skilled workers, competency-based apprenticeships provide a pipeline of well-trained, qualified candidates. Registered apprenticeships combine curriculum and on-the-job training that prepare trainees for today’s workplace. Apprenticeship also facilitates succession within your company by providing a structure for skills and knowledge to transfer from expert employees to new recruits.
