Today there is an increasing appreciation for the value that apprenticeships can provide to industry and to job seekers. Through a three-part webinar series, we will explore the ins and outs of apprenticeship programs and the potential role of apprenticeships as part of the region’s transportation talent strategy.
“Apprenticeships are experiencing a modern renaissance in America because the earn-while-learn model is a win-win proposition for workers looking to punch their ticket to the middle-class and for employers looking to grow and thrive in our modern global economy.”
— U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez
