In order to train skilled workers of the future, an agreement is entered into between an employer, the employee (apprentice), the program sponsor (the Cornhusker Chapter of ABC), and the various governing agencies (a licensing board) which regulate apprenticeships. In short, each partner agrees to do certain things so that the apprenticeship agreement is fulfilled. Care must be taken to ensure that each party is knowledgeable and exhibits due diligence about their responsibilities. These responsibilities may include a wage progression, reporting on the job learning, attending training classes, and demonstrating proficiencies and complying with ratios concerning journeyman to apprentice.
It is the intent of this website (1) to get signed up for training classes and (2) for employers to enroll in the Cornhusker apprenticeship program. Along the way, some important responsibilities will be highlighted, but you are obligated to take a “deeper dive” and do proper due diligence into all the details involved with each partner’s roles.
