Registered apprenticeship describes those programs that meet specific
federally approved standards designed to safeguard the welfare of
apprentices. The programs are registered with the Bureau of
Apprenticeship and Training (BAT), U.S. Department of Labor, or one of
27 State Apprenticeship Agencies or Councils approved BAT.
Apprenticeships are relationships between an employer and employee
during which the worker, or apprentice, learns an occupation in a
structured program sponsored jointly by employers and labor unions or
operated by employers and employee associations.
