Registered Apprenticeship is in the Spotlight at the National Apprenticeship Week 2023

The successful training approach of undergoing a registered apprenticeship cannot be overstated. It’s a proven model to produce talent in various industries like the trades. This year’s National Apprenticeship Week seeks to further promote the practice with events and discussions scheduled from November 13th through the 19th, 2023.

Apprenticeship programs have a vital role in training the future builders and innovators in our community.
