Colorado Apprenticeship Directory Information
In 2019, the general assembly created the Colorado state apprenticeship resource directory (directory), which is a directory established by the department of labor and employment (department) that lists registered apprenticeship program sponsors that operate programs in Colorado. The bill amends the information the department requires apprenticeship programs to submit for the purpose of eliminating confusion and gathering concise information to share with individuals considering apprenticeships.
The bill also requires the department to include information regarding each program's registration information and registered apprenticeship program standards in the directory.
The bill requires the department, in its efforts to promote awareness of the directory, to conduct annual outreach that includes providing technical assistance and resources to promote apprenticeship openings.
