About Training Agents

Training agents must make a commitment to provide on-the-job training according to approved industry standards, supervise the apprentice according to the ratio approved in the industry standards and adhere to policies established by the state or the committee. Training agents encourage apprentices to fully participate in the related training classes and make sure that they do not set up barriers to full participation. The training agent must fairly evaluate the apprentices’ progress and make recommendations to the apprenticeship committee regarding the advancement of apprentices. The training agent must pay the apprentice according to the standards and participate in the committee’s annual journey wage rate survey. Training agents must treat apprentices fairly and follow the requirements of the industry standards and policies of the committee.
