The National Apprenticeship Program.
Employment and Training Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.
A brief explanation of the national apprenticeship program is presented primarily in terms of the more important policies and the role of government in this system of training. Eleven sections are included: (1) What Is Apprenticeship? (2) Why Is Apprenticeship Important? (3) What Can Apprenticeship Do? (4) How the National Apprenticeship Program Operates, (5) Basic Standards of an Apprenticeship Program, (6) Information on Laws and Regulations Affecting Apprenticeship, (7) Veterans' Training Allowances, (8) Where Apprentices Are Employed, (9) Where to Apply, (10) Apprenticeable Occupations, and (11) List of Apprenticeable Occupations. The section on apprenticeable occupations constitutes the majority of the booklet. Ninety-four basic trade classifications are presented, with related occupations grouped under them. Although not final or all inclusive, the list of occupations are those that meet the criteria for apprenticeable occupations and which are included in programs registered with State apprenticeship agencies or the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training. Each basic trade classification includes the customary term of apprenticeship, in years, and a code number(s) from the "Dictionary of Occupational Titles." Appended are lists of Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training regional offices and State and territorial apprenticeship agencies, and The National Apprenticeship Act, (as amended). (SH)
