IT Generalist Apprenticeship

IT Apprenticeship is a New Approach to Building Talent for your Company

NPower has pioneered an IT Generalist Apprenticeship program with the U.S. Department of Labor (US DOL) to offer a nationally recognized credential to our graduates and to support your company’s entry-level technology-related recruitment goals.

What is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship is a nationally recognized credential from the U.S. Department of Labor. It is earned by individuals who first enter a structured technical training program—consisting of classroom instruction and a paid internship. The individual is then hired by an Apprenticeship partner employer providing On-the-Job Training (OJT).

Apprenticeship is Good for Business

  • Helps recruit and develop a highly skilled workforce
  • Improves productivity and the bottom line
  • Provides opportunities for tax credits and employee tuition benefits in some states
  • Reduces turnover costs & increases employee retention
  • Creates industry-driven and flexible training solutions to meet national and local needs

"For every dollar spent on apprenticeship, employers get an average of $1.47 back in increased productivity."

—U.S. DOL
