Idaho Apprenticeship Training: What you need to know

An apprenticeship is a training program that combines classroom instruction with on-the-job training under the supervision of a qualified journeyperson in the craft, trade, or profession. The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Apprenticeship (OA) is responsible for establishing the framework of basic standards and apprenticeship programs that are commonly registered with the U.S. government or a state apprenticeship agency. Idaho does not have its own state apprenticeship law; therefore, OA governs apprenticeship in Idaho, providing employers with technical assistance and information, issuing standards, and monitoring, registering, and canceling apprenticeship programs. There is additional information on the federal apprenticeship law and OA. .
