    WHAT IS AN APPRENTICESHIP

• Apprenticeship is a combination of on-the-job training (OJT) and related
  classroom instruction under the supervision of a journey-level craft person
  or trade professional in which workers learn the practical and theoretical
  aspects of a highly skilled occupation.
• After completing an apprenticeship program, the worker's journey-level
  status provides an additional benefit of nationwide mobility at journey
  level scale.
• Will being an Apprentice help me earn more money? Yes. Apprentices
  are guaranteed periodic pay increases throughout their Apprenticeships,
  provided they successfully complete program requirements. Studies have
  proven that Journeyworkers that have graduated from Apprenticeship
  Programs typically earn significantly more money than do workers who
  have not participated in an Apprenticeship & Training Program.
