Apprenticeship is a paid training program; apprentices earn while they learn—paid employment combined with classroom education. This ensures a well-qualified, job-ready employee.

Apprenticeships generally range from one to four years and at completion, the Connecticut Department of Labor’s Office of Apprenticeship Training provides a portable training credential that:

● signifies completion of the apprenticeship program;

● distinguishes you to future employers as a master of your craft; and

● grants you eligibility to take the occupational license exam if needed for future employment.

A Registered Apprenticeship program can help employers develop a world-class workforce, enhance productivity, profitability and the bottom line. Hundreds of companies are already benefitting their business by taking advantage oftax credits.

Are you interested in apprenticeship? There are many industry areas to choose from and plenty of resources to help.


1. Find an apprenticeship sponsor. Apprenticeships start with the hiring process. CTDOL has a list of thousands of sponsoring companies that may be hiring apprentices.

  • Start by checking out the list of licensed apprenticeship sponsors-each listed employer contact is a licensed professional in their distinguished trade. Use the “List of Sponsors” tab at the top of the page, scroll to the bottom of the page, and select the following excel link “Go to the Apprenticeship Sponsor Report.”
  • Contact the sponsors you are interested in to find out if they are hiring apprentices. The excel spreadsheet includes contact info.

2. Once you have contacted your sponsor and they would like to recruit you as an apprentice, you are all set.

  • Once you have been hired by your sponsor, your now employer will provide all further next steps. They will work with CTDOL and help you progress in your apprenticeship program.
