    What is the difference between Registered Apprenticeship and other types of training?

    • The Registered Apprenticeship system of training is unique in that it is the only formal, structured, and nationally recognized education and training program available that combines the two most common forms of career and occupational learning: classroom instruction with on-the-job training.

      Apprentices not only learn occupational skills in the classroom,their learning is expanded to include hands-on, paid, on-the-job training!Students learn and practice all phases of the trade/occupation in real-world applications. The program must be registered with the Arizona Apprenticeship Office.
