Apprenticeship Self-Registration Packet for Approved Sponsors

This packet allows Connecticut employers who are already approved to sponsor an apprenticeship program to self-register their employees as apprentices. If you are not an approved sponsor and would like to become one, or would like to register a pre-apprentice (high school student) please contact the Office of Apprenticeship Training at (860) 263-6085.

NOTICE: In order to view, fill-in and print all of the forms included in this packet, you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader software (version 5.0 or higher), installed on your computer.  You may download Acrobat Reader from our Accessing PDF Files page.  In addition, links to forms and other pages in this packet open in separate windows.  To return to the packet, you must close the new window.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
Forms 1 through 3 must be filled out completely and correctly with appropriate fees enclosed to comply with the self-registration option.

If the packet is incorrect it will be returned (with the enclosed fees) and the registration is void.

The apprentice registration date is the date the completed packet is received and approved by the Office of Apprenticeship Training at the Connecticut Department of Labor. The employer (sponsor) will be notified by e-mail or fax of the registration date. If you do not provide an e-mail address or fax number the registration date will be acknowledged by mail. When returning this packet, please provide a cover letter as to your preference for acknowledgement.

It is mandatory that you notify this office via email or letter regarding any terminations or completions of apprentices as this can impact your ability to utilize the self-registration procedure due to ratio requirements. In addition to the name of the apprentice, notification of terminations must include the date of termination (day, month, year) and cause.   Download Termination Form (AT-9)

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Apprenticeship Training at (860) 263-6085 or you may e-mail your questions to ct.apprenticeship@ct.gov
