Texas Apprenticeship Training: What you need to know

An apprenticeship is a program that combines classroom instruction or education with on-the-job training under the close supervision of a highly skilled journeyworker in the craft, trade, or profession. Those who complete apprenticeship programs acquire a high level of skill in trades or crafts and earn increasing wages as their job skills increase. At the end of their apprenticeships, they can become certified journeyworkers and earn the full pay a journeyworker earns. These are generally higher wages than those paid to nonapprenticeship workers.

Texas does not have its own state apprenticeship law; therefore, the federal Office of Apprenticeship (OA) governs apprenticeship in Texas. OA provides employers with technical assistance and information, issues standards for apprenticeships, and monitors programs. There is additional and comprehensive and detailed information on the federal apprenticeship law and OA.
Employers may not discriminate in any way against an apprentice on the basis of the person's race, color, disability, religion, sex, national origin, or age. There is a narrow exception if disability, religion, sex, national origin, or age is a bona fide occupational qualification for the job in question (TX Lab. Code Sec. 21.059).
