Apprenticeships give you a fantastic experience in the working world and show employers that you can "hit the ground running". Unlike other training programs, apprenticeships are jobs. Right off the bat, the employer will put you to work; you'll be paid from day 1. You will often start at a fraction of your wage as an employee and work your way up as you continue to learn more. While many internships are unpaid, apprenticeships are always paid.
Apprenticeships are structured training programs which give you a chance to work not only towards a qualification but a career. Apprenticeships help you gain the skills and knowledge you need to succeed in your chosen industry. Depending on the trade, there is a specific required number of hours you much complete both OTJ, (on-the-job) and class-room training. This gives you a real chance to put your skills into practice and helps you to gain more confidence in a working environment.

Every year New York State sets aside millions of dollars for training through various grants offered by internal departments such as the Department of Labor (DOL) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). These grants can help reimburse the sponsors for any costs associated in training their apprentice.
Every Apprenticeship program has a sponsor. The sponsor is responsible for the overall operation of the program. Sponsors can be a single business or a consortium of businesses. Regardless of who serves as the sponsor, apprenticeships are always employer-driven and employers are involved throughout the process.
