Trade Training? Apprenticeship Training?

Which is Which? Are they one in the same?

Trade Training targets specific skills for a recognized trade.  It can be a registered apprenticeship program, or an accredited trade training program.

Registered Apprenticeship:
Apprenticeship programs meet the Department of Labor (DOL) requirements. 

  • CBIZ provides the related classroom training
  • The sponsoring company provides the "on-the-job" (OJL) learning. 

A typical apprenticeship program runs for 4 years, with 144-160 hours per year of classroom training and up to 8,000 hours of OJL.

Accredited Trade Training:
Accredited programs meet the requirements of a national trade group. Current CBIZ trade programs are based on the guidelines and curriculum fro National Center for Construction Education Research (NCCER)
