About Registered Apprenticeship Programs

Did you know?! According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there were 25,645 active female apprentices and 256,850 male apprentices in 2019's fiscal year. A Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) is a proven model of apprenticeship that has been validated by the U.S. Department of Labor or a State Apprenticeship Agency. RAPs give employers the ability to access a diverse pool of talented potential employees who are prepared to step into entry-level management positions through obtaining paid-work experience, classroom instruction, and nationally recognized qualifications.

Through the Women in Manufacturing Association's® (WiM) partnership with Jobs for the Future, WiM Corporate Members, Chapters, and Individual Members have access to a streamlined way of building their own Registered Apprenticeship Program. Jobs for the Future works to connect interested corporations with the appropriate partner to carry out a successful and equitable Registered Apprenticeship Program by providing technical assistance in recruiting, retaining, and training women in manufacturing Registered Apprenticeship Programs.
