A virtual convening to discuss how industry leaders are moving forward on their efforts to adopt the Industry-Recognized Apprenticeship Programs (IRAP) model in their industries or are considering becoming a U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recognized Standards Recognition Entity (SRE).
For IRAPs to fulfill their vision of a flexible, market-driven, industry-led approach to training, industry must lead on this effort. By applying to become an SRE, industry associations have a unique opportunity to set the standard for IRAPs, ensuring more flexibility to meet the needs of their industry, helping to close the skills gap and improving our economy when our country needs it most. This forum will feature discussion among industry leaders on how they envision IRAPs meeting critical workforce challenges in their industry and how their organizations will play a leading role. The session will also provide an opportunity to share on early efforts and to answer questions you may have.
