Apprentices, employers, and industries train through registered apprenticeship because it works. Apprentices earn a progressive wage while learning an occupation. Employers grow their own skilled workforce. And industries ensure the integrity of their training. Wisconsin employers annually train approximately 10,000 registered apprentices in about 200 occupations - from construction and manufacturing to healthcare and information technology.
