Marine registered apprenticeships are an industry-driven training method that combines hands-on instruction with customized on-the-job training. Employers of all sizes have used apprenticeships as a way to incorporate flexible and customized training strategies that are then used to meet the needs of their company. Once established, these effective programs have the potential to reduce turnover rates, increase productivity, lower the cost of recruitment and increase safety in the workplace.

Quick Facts About Registered Apprenticeships

  • Helps Develop A Skilled Workforce: recruit and develop talent that helps you grow your business.
  • Customizable Training: create flexible training options that ensure workers have the ability to learn the right skills.
  • Positive Impact To Your Bottom Line: According to the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration, for every dollar spent on registered apprenticeships, employers receive an average return on investment of $1.50.
  • Retain Workers: 91% of apprentices that complete an apprenticeship are still employed nine months later.

Apprenticeships provide the opportunity to custom train a ready workforce to better prepare for future needs

  • Do you need a more skilled workforce?
  • Do you want to diversify your talent pool?
  • Do your workers need help keeping pace with industry advancements?
  • Are your highly skilled workers retiring soon or leaving for other opportunities
