Apprenticeship training combines on-the-job experience with related classroom instruction. Apprentices MUST be registered with the US Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship, and with the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development. Registering for adult education programs DOES NOT automatically enroll anyone as an apprentice. Employers (sponsors) must contact the Apprenticeship Coordinator to facilitate the registration process. The Apprenticeship Coordinator is located at the Westampton Campus (for Burlington County employers). For more information call (609) 267-4226 ext. 231.
