Ky. Labor Cabinet Secretary to discuss apprenticeships with local employers

August 9, 2016

Registered apprenticeships are an increasingly important solution for employers that need to cultivate new skilled workers.

Local employers are invited to join Kentucky Labor Cabinet Secretary Derrick Ramsey on Thursday to discuss apprenticeship programs.

At the meeting, which is set for 10 a.m. at the Elizabethtown Community and Technical College main campus, Occupational and Technical Building, Room 303, employers and stakeholders throughout the eight-county Lincoln Trail region will learn about strengthening their workforce through apprenticeships.

Registered apprenticeships combine on-the-job training with technical instruction tailored to a company’s needs and provide students an opportunity to earn a wage while gaining occupational competencies. Registered apprenticeships exist for nearly 1,000 skillsets from welding to HVAC to information technology to healthcare fields.

To RSVP, employers may email Carter Dyson, One Stop Director at Kentucky Career Center – Lincoln Trail, at carter.dyson@ky.gov or Jerisia Lamons at jerisia.lamons@ky.gov.
