How does this program benefit your company?
If your company has a registered apprenticeship through the NYDOL, then you will be eligible to get the related instruction portion of an apprenticeship partly/fully covered. There is also funding available for pre-apprenticeships to get interested candidates prepared to enter an apprenticeship program. Please contact your local community college to participate or contact James Willey for more information.
After you decide that apprenticeship is right for your company, contact your local representative designated by county to start the process. For information please visit Contact Us Page of Apprenticeship of NYS Department of Labor.
