Missouri Apprenticeship Training laws & HR compliance analysis
Missouri Apprenticeship Training: What you need to know
An apprenticeship program combines classroom instruction or education with on-the-job training under the close supervision of a skilled and experienced journeyworker in a craft, trade, or profession. Missouri does not have its own state apprenticeship law; therefore, the federal Office of Apprenticeship (OA) governs apprenticeship in Missouri, providing employers with technical assistance and information. Comprehensive information on the federal apprenticeship law (including apprenticeship standards and what must be contained in an apprenticeship agreement) is available.
