13 Oct 2020
The North Dakota Department of Commerce today announced that the agency was awarded $694,317 through the U.S. Department of Labor Apprenticeship State Expansion Grant.
“Apprenticeships have proven to be a successful workforce pipeline by pairing on-the-job, hands-on learning with classroom instruction; giving participants an opportunity to earn an income while they pursue an education directly targeted at preparing them for the workforce,” Commerce Workforce Division Director Katie Ralston said. “Apprenticeships also give employers an opportunity to recruit and train workers to meet the demands of their company.”
