This study examines Registered Apprenticeships, career-training programs administered by the Employment and Training Administration's Office of Apprenticeship in the U.S. Department of Labor, in conjunction with state apprenticeship agencies. The study found program participants had substantially higher earnings than nonparticipants, and program social benefits were much larger than costs.
