Apprenticeship is a combination of on-the-job training and related classroom instruction in which workers learn the practical and theoretical aspects of a highly skilled occupation. Apprenticeship programs are sponsored by joint employer and labor groups, individual employers, and/or employer associations. There are over 800 recognized apprenticeable occupations at the present time.
For more background information on apprenticeships, please see the NH Department of Labor.
For information on employers and sponsors that offer apprenticeships in NH, please click here. This U.S. Department of Labor site lists apprenticeship program sponsors recognized and registered by the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training or a State Registration Agency (where appropriate). The official name of the program sponsor, along with street address, city, and State is shown. Apprenticeship programs are sponsored and operated on a voluntary basis by individual employers, employer associations, or partnerships between employers and labor unions. The data will be updated on a monthly basis. The data is presented by State and county, listing occupations in alphabetical order, followed by the employers who have a registered program for that occupation.
