Apprenticeship

The Texas Workforce Investment Council, through its Apprenticeship and Training Advisory Committee, produces an apprenticeship brochure for students, employers, and local education agencies to increase awareness of registered apprenticeship in Texas. The brochures identify specific highlights and outcomes of registered apprenticeship training programs and reiterate that registered apprenticeship programs are critical in building a labor force of highly skilled workers for Texas. (June 2018)
