The Department of Workforce Services is working with the Office of Apprenticeship with a grant from the US Department of Labor to expand registered apprenticeship programs (RAPs) statewide that includes technical assistance for businesses to register a program.

A RAP is a proven model of apprenticeship that has been validated by the U.S. Department of Labor.
