Apprenticeships 

Florida State Registered Apprenticeship Programs

Registered apprenticeship programs enable employers to develop and apply industry standards to training programs for registered apprentices that can increase productivity and improve the quality of the workforce. Apprentices who complete registered apprenticeship programs are accepted by the industry as journey workers. By providing on-the-job training, related classroom instruction, and guaranteed wage structures, employers who sponsor apprentices provide incentives to attract and retain more highly qualified employees and improve productivity. Certifications earned through registered apprenticeship programs are recognized nationwide. Click HERE for a list of registered programs in our region.

ABC Florida Gulf Coast Apprenticeship Program

The purpose of the apprenticeship program is to develop a qualified, adaptable, and most important, safe workforce. A skilled workforce creates profit for both the worker and the contractor.
