Apprenticeships

Virginia’s Registered Apprenticeship (RA) program is administered by the Department of Labor and Industry (DOLI), www.doli.virginia.gov . Registered Apprenticeship creates earn-while-you-learn models that provide occupation specific training. Virginia’s community colleges can be providers of the required Related Technical Instruction (RTI) that supports Work-Based Learning (WBL). Community colleges provide valuable sources of training and RTI for various employers, businesses, and sponsors. Employers who wish to start RA programs can find their local Registered Apprenticeship Consultant here:  DOLI Contact a Consultant Today (virginia.gov) .
