How does apprenticeship work?

Apprenticeship works when an apprentice (you) is employed by a sponsoring business that provides paid on-the-job training that coincides with classroom learning.

The apprentice and sponsoring business agree on the terms and conditions of the Apprenticeship Standards, which the employer uses to register their apprenticeship program with the Montana Registered Apprenticeship Program.

The Apprenticeship Standards lays out the wage scale, length of apprenticeship, work process schedule and competencies, related instruction, and responsibilities of both the employer and the apprentice.
