Policy and Procedures Overcoming Challenges Some History The first Registered Apprenticeship - Wisconsin in 1911, the US Congress passed the National Apprenticeship Act (known as the "Fitzgerald Act") in 1937, establishing federal Registered Apprenticeship.

Missouri has in excess of 14,000 apprentices state wide Skills attainment taught while on the job! Why We Chose this Employment Pathway Demand Side Employment Driven The employers have the jobs Apprenticeship is a great platform to discuss an ongoing solution Apprenticeship for the most part offers a

guaranteed position Structured training and ongoing supports Win-Win-Win / Individual / Employer / Community How We Collaborated for Success Starting from nothing is equal parts Market research is critical Who should be a partner Community Leaders

Business Leaders Federal & State Government Leaders Local Support Groups School System Guest Speakers Elizabeth Perkins & Kim Gee VR MO Employment Solution NOT Employment Program

Establish minimum standards of education and experience required of apprentices. Register all apprenticeship information/changes with the Registration Agency (RAPIDS) within 45 days of occurrence.
