Registration Open for Kentucky Registered Apprenticeship Summit in Louisville September 11-12KAM
The Kentucky Registered Apprenticeship Summit, a collaborative effort between the Kentucky Labor Cabinet, Cabinet for Economic Development, Education and Workforce Development Cabinet and the Department of Education, will be held at the Seelbach Hilton Hotel in Louisville from September 11 – 12, 2017.
The inaugural Kentucky Registered Apprenticeship Summit will bring apprenticeship stakeholders together with business, education, and civic leaders from across the Commonwealth to discuss ways this proven training model can transform our state’s workforce. These goals are accomplished by: (1) providing a forum for businesses and education leaders to gather and exchange ideas; (2) delivering access to thought-provoking speakers; (3) and creating the opportunity for exceptional networking. Attendees will experience sector-focused breakout sessions to discuss Registered Apprenticeships and their impact on workforce development.
Additionally, the Summit will recognize upcoming graduates of certified apprenticeship programs. In order to graduate such programs, individuals completed 2,000 on-the-job training hours and 144 classroom hours per year.
Since last November, the number of apprentices in Kentucky have increased by 39 percent. The Kentucky Labor Cabinet has registered nearly 182 different programs that apprentice 3,100 people across the state.
