It's Working!
 Articulation arrangements between the Registered Apprenticeship sponsors and institutions of higher learning afford the apprentice-learner college credit for course work completed in their training experience. As a result, more than 5,000 registered apprentices are dually enrolled in their registered apprenticeship program and college. These agreements establish a clear degree pathway, free of barriers, for apprentices to achieve the highest level of education and career potential.
