To be certain apprentices get proper training, both federal and state governments establish rules which supervise the progress of the trainee. Each apprenticeship program must adhere to regulations and standards which are registered with the Ohio Apprenticeship Council. The U. S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training assists in the formulation and administration of the standards.
Apprenticeship in construction has been described as “the doorway to opportunity.” Apprentices, at very little or no cost to themselves, learn skills they can use the rest of their lives. Training gained through apprenticeship has enabled many workers to advance to better jobs.
