A formal Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) sponsored by NDSCS is when the employer does not have an existing program. NDSCS provides the related technical instruction and sponsors the apprenticeship program for the employer with the US Department of Labor (DOL). These apprenticeships are well-defined and documented and are approved by the DOL.
Related Study Apprenticeship refers to the technical instruction or bookwork that NDSCS provides to apprentices of employers who already have an existing Apprenticeship program. These apprenticeships may be industry-recognized or approved by the US Department of Labor.
