AERC Apprenticeship Program
Under the United States Department of Labor (USDOL), AERC is a registered apprenticeship program sponsor. In conjunction with the current national initiative headed by the National Governor’s Association (NGA) to make further progress on the “reskilling and recovery network,” our program ensures that all colleges within UAA can participate in the national initiative for promoting apprenticeship and provide career pathways for students. This apprenticeship initiative also provides pathways for individuals that completed registered apprenticeship programs to transfer their on-the-job training and related technical instruction toward college credit and expedite degree completion. This initiative includes multiple businesses and industry leaders along with education leaders to identify current issues and develop solutions to provide career trajectories for individuals that suffered unemployment and financial turmoil during the pandemic.
