Lunch & Learn with Weld Work Force

Please join us for a lunch and learn with Employment Services of Weld County. Learn about their Registered Apprenticeship Program.

Registered Apprenticeships

Apprenticeship offers a flexible training solution aligned with national industry standards and your company-specific standards. You get the benefit of a well-skilled worker ready for a career in your company.

There are apprenticeship programs in more than 1,000 occupations including jobs in health care, energy, IT, transportation and advanced manufacturing as well as building trades.

If you have positions with high turnover, an aging but skilled workforce or are challenged by helping your workers keep up with industry changes, apprenticeship is the solution.
You’ll see the impact on your bottom line: higher productivity, lower turnover, less recruitment costs and increased worker safety.

Apprenticeship can be customized to meet your needs. You can choose a time-based program where workers complete a specific number of hours or competency-based where workers demonstrate skills through testing or a combination.

You can train new workers or upgrade the skills of you current workforce. You’ll be creating career paths for the next generation of skilled workers.

You may qualify for tax credits or claim training expenses as a federal tax credit.

Apprentices receive a paycheck from day one that is guaranteed to increase as their training and skills progress. Workers who complete an apprenticeship earn a credential equivalent to a 2 or 4 year college degree.
