Document and resource links highlighted on this page will help Registered Apprenticeship program employers/sponsors develop, register and manage their program. The USDOL Apprenticeable Occupations List outlines nearly 1,000 occupations in which Registered Apprenticeship programs can be developed. With assistance from a Program Consultant, the program sponsor may develop program standards for any skilled occupation that will meet their needs. A new apprenticeable occupation may also be developed to meet the needs of the sponsor. New apprenticeable occupations must be widely recognized and supported by the industry and require a minimum of one year of training.
The Self Assessment and Program Improvement Plan helps seasoned sponsors evaluate, improve and update an existing program in order to maintain a high quality program. The O*NET ONLINE system serves as the nation's primary source of occupational information, providing comprehensive information on key attributes and characteristics of workers and occupations.
