Georgia Apprenticeship Training: What you need to know

An apprenticeship is an on-the-job training program that combines classroom instruction or education with work performance under the close supervision of a skilled and experienced journeyworker in a craft, trade, or profession. Georgia does not have its own state apprenticeship law; therefore, the federal Office of Apprenticeship (OA) governs apprenticeship in Georgia, providing employers with technical assistance and information, issuing standards, and monitoring, registering, and terminating apprenticeship programs. There is comprehensive information on the federal apprenticeship law.

Georgia does have a state Youth Apprenticeship Program for pupils who are in the 11th or 12th grade at public school or who are at least 16 years old (GA Code Sec. 20-2-161.2). The program is offered through Georgia's public schools. A student may be granted time off from school to work as an apprentice for any business organization approved by the Department of Education as a qualified employer. Public high school students at least 16 years of age may enroll.
Employers may not discriminate in any apprenticeship program on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, or age (GA Code Sec. 45-19-30).
