On Sept. 28, 2020, Governor Reynolds announced two new Registered Apprenticeship grant opportunities totaling $10 million funded by the Coronavirus Relief Fund. Iowa has been a leader in the creation and use of Registered Apprenticeships which provide training in an “earn and learn” model that helps employers create the workforce they need.  Registered Apprenticeships are an employer-driven model, combining on-the-job learning with related classroom instruction, providing the Apprentice with a nationally recognized credential and employers with a skilled worker at the end of the program.
