Healthcare Apprenticeship Implementation Toolkit

Welcome to the Healthcare Apprenticeship Implementation Toolkit! Montana grew apprenticeships in healthcare from 0 to 60 in three years. Well more specifically, zero to two hundred apprentices, 50 employer sponsors, and 17 different occupations! Here, you’ll find the tools that we created to promote, customize, and implement healthcare apprenticeship programs. The materials start with general information. Next, you’ll find tools we developed to explain apprenticeship to our partners. They are tailored to employers, campus faculty, and workforce partners. Next, you’ll find materials specific to each occupation in which we have apprenticeship programs. This includes the trade schedule that outlines on the job training competencies and related curriculum, as well as other items we use to explain or implement programs in that occupation. Finally, you’ll see apprenticeship registration documents. Some of these may look familiar if you’ve worked in apprenticeship before, but we’ve also included a pre apprenticeship agreement that is unique to Montana. This toolkit was developed by HealthCARE Montana, a TAACCCT Round IV project led by Missoula College and the Montana Department of Labor & Industry’s Montana Registered Apprenticeship Program.
