SUNY Apprenticeship Programs
Why Develop a Registered Apprenticeship Program?
As an employer in New York, trained, skilled workers are needed to keep your company moving forward. Apprentices have a genuine interest in your industry. Being part of an apprenticeship program may reduce hiring costs by providing a streamlined channel to bring on new workers. When working with apprentices, companies report higher productivity, retention rates (less turnover), and substantial return on investment.
