On March 11, 2020, the U.S. Department of Labor published a Final Rule to establish a system for advancing the development of industry-recognized apprenticeship programs (IRAPs).  IRAPs are high-quality apprenticeship programs that provide individuals with opportunities to obtain workplace-relevant knowledge and progressively advancing skills. 


IRAPs include a paid-work component and an educational component, and result in an industry-recognized credential.  An IRAP is developed or delivered by entities such as trade and industry groups, corporations, non-profit organizations, educational institutions, unions, and joint labor-management organizations. 

The final rule establishes a process for the Department of Labor’s Office of Apprenticeship Administrator to recognize qualified third-party entities, known as Standards Recognition Entities (SREs), which will, in turn, evaluate and recognize IRAPs in accordance with the standards established by the Department's new rule.   

This webinar will provide important information for those interested in becoming an SRE, such as the roles and responsibilities of an SRE and how to apply to become a DOL recognized SRE.
