Office of Apprenticeship Training

Registered apprentices earn while they learn: they master a trade through a combination of on-the-job training and classroom instruction.   Thousands of companies across Connecticut have benefited from a customized Registered Apprenticeship training program. These programs increase workforce recruitment and proficiency, help employers transfer occupational skills to a new generation of workers, and ensure succession planning. Depending upon the trade, apprenticeship programs may last 1-4 years.  

When participants complete their program, the Connecticut Department of Labor’s Office of Apprenticeship Training provides an industry recognized, portable credential that:
  • Certifies completion of the program
  • Distinguishes the apprentice as a master of their craft
  • Makes the apprentice eligible to take any occupational licensing exams
