What is Technical Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeship isn’t just for welders or electricians anymore. It has morphed into the tech industry as a competency based registered apprenticeship. Competencies are basically a list of tasks that the apprentice works to show mastery. Yes, employers participating in apprenticeship programs get to review and modify the competencies.

Registered apprenticeship is a combination of on-the-job training, mentoring, classroom/self-study/online training, and rewarding the apprentice for gains in skills.
Registered apprenticeship is a Department of Labor approved training program.
