Apprentices Annual Mandatory Meeting, TBA at 7:00 PM
Apprentice classes begin in September 2017.
Payment for classes is due prior to the first session.
Apprenticeship is a federal program.
The United States Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship, is the registering agency of Apprentices in New Jersey.
A Licensed Master Plumber or trade union whose business is based in New Jersey may sponsor full time employees as Apprentices.
An employer should contact the County Apprenticeship Coordinator to register employees as Apprentices.
County Apprenticeship Coordinators are located in each county (typically in the county vocational school) to facilitate Apprentice registration and coordinate Apprenticeship programs in their respective counties.
An Apprentice is not registered until all original forms are processed and approved by the United States Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship (OA).
Sponsors of five or more Apprentices are required to form a Joint Apprenticeship Committee (JAC).
Apprenticeship involves two major training components: 1) on-the-job learning (OJL- formely OJT) by the Sponsor and, 2) related technical instruction (RTI) coursework by an approved provider.
