ApprenticeshipUSA: Accelerating Future Leaders in Manufacturing

A registered apprenticeship is a proven work-and-learn model for preparing future leaders in manufacturing. Last week, NIMS hosted a series of apprenticeship accelerator workshops at NIMS headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia. Over the course of a day employers, community colleges, and industry associations from across the nation learned how to develop, implement, and register an apprenticeship program. Members of the Department of Labor – Employment and Training Administration provided their insight on the DOL program registration process, including an overview of the DOL Standards Builder and RAPIDS systems.
