Registered Youth Apprenticeship

Registered Youth Apprenticeship is typically, a multi-year program that combines school- and work-based learning in a specific occupation area/cluster and designed to lead directly into either a related post-secondary program or continued into a registered apprenticeship program. It is a formal program registered with the US Department of Labor's Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training or with an approved state apprenticeship agency. These programs follow strict guidelines as to the types of training.
