An apprenticeship is a formal method of training. Unlike other training methods apprentices learn a trade or craft through a program of on-the-job training and actual classroom work. Apprenticeships last from three to six years and during this time apprentices spend 2,000 to 10,000 hours in on-the-job training. By the end of the apprenticeship an apprentice has developed skills and knowledge that are applicable throughout an entire craft of trade.

Apprenticeship programs are operated as cooperative efforts: Employers and unions working together to develop a pool of qualified journeyworkers for the future. This cooperation between management and labor involves skilled journeyworkers who handle classroom and on-the-job training aspects, and management representatives who oversee the efficient operation of the program and assist in curriculum development.*
