WHY START AN
Enhance your business’s recruitment and training with an apprenticeship program. The Oklahoma Office for Workforce can help create apprenticeship programs tailored to your businesses needs and funding is available. Sustain long-term workforce needs by teaching a specialized curriculum based on your industry's unique needs. On average, every dollar invested in an apprentice program returns $1.47 thanks to increased productivity and innovation, and reduced waste.
Apprentices are trained to employer’s standards using the employer’s equipment and protocols. Teaching your trade or skill to a new generation of workers is an efficient way to fill vacancies in areas where skill gaps have made hiring difficult.
