The state of Maryland has reached more than 12,000 registered apprentices currently earning and learning in the Maryland Apprenticeship and Training Program — the highest number of apprentices ever in state history.
As of today, there are over 12,000 apprentices registered across Maryland’s 182 active apprenticeship programs partnering with 3,879 employers.
During the past nearly eight years, the Maryland Apprenticeship and Training Program:
● Created a total of 127 new registered apprenticeship programs and attracted more apprentices to enroll in these programs than ever before;
● Introduced registered apprenticeships to new industries such as automotive, cybersecurity, health care, IT and manufacturing, while also adding apprenticeship opportunities for 89 occupations not previously available through the apprenticeship model in the state;
●Achieved significant milestones for registered apprenticeships both in the state and country;
● Created a highly successful youth apprenticeship initiative that serves as a direct on-ramp for high school students to enter into apprenticeship opportunities; and
● Expanded capacity and developed highly innovative practices to ensure the continued growth of this critical program in the future.
Apprenticeships are full-time jobs that include on-the-job training and classroom instruction, allowing apprentices to earn while they learn. Anyone 18 years of age or older can be a registered apprentice. For more information, email [email protected] or call 410-767-2246.
