Apprenticeship is a system of learning while earning, and "learning by doing."  It combines training on the job with related and supplemental instruction at school.  Today, it is utilized chiefly in the skilled crafts.  Each program operates under apprenticeship training standards agreed to by labor and/or management in accordance with State and Federal laws, under which a person works with a skilled worker and gains on the job skills and "know-how" and in turn becomes an important part of the occupation and industry.
