ORGANIZED LABOR IS WHERE
BEGAN AND CONTINUE TO
The Kansas Office of Apprenticeship aims to support the need for high-quality, registered apprenticeship programs in trade unions by creating unique, intentional opportunities. The Fitzgerald Act of 1937 served as the basis for Registered Apprenticeship programs, which can be found in the Federal Register in 29 CFR 29 and 30.
Registered Apprenticeship programs expertly combine
systems for training and mentorship, as well as employee protections for pay, diversity and inclusion, and safety. The Kansas Office of Apprenticeship Program recognizes all Kansas residents who participate in a registered apprenticeship program no matter where the association is established.
