Registered Apprenticeships

Modern high school shop classroom - student and teacher

The Kentucky Career Center’s Office of Employer and Apprenticeship Services is the state’s approving agency for the Registered Apprenticeship Program.

The program helps businesses develop their workforce, serving the critical need of increasing employee retention and finding qualified candidates for hard-to-fill jobs. It grows talent through work-based training initiatives, combining on-the-job training with first-hand experience.

Over 1,500 occupations are recognized for apprenticeship programs, going beyond traditional construction and skilled trade positions to encompass the jobs of tomorrow such as aerospace engineer, physical therapy aide, office manager – even whiskey specialist.

As Registered Apprenticeships align with community college courses, this innovative program offers an alternative path to postsecondary education that drives Kentucky’s growth and competitiveness.
