Registered Apprenticeship programs in NJ, a record

Apprenticeships are a key component of the Murphy administration’s approach to education and employment. It presents its Jobs NJ initiative as a plan to optimize education and training while helping employers quickly fill their talent needs. Yesterday, Department of Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner Robert Asaro-Angelo announced the state had achieved a record number of Registered Apprenticeship programs (1,002), a 64% increase since Gov. Phil Murphy took office in January 2018. In his budget plan for fiscal year 2021, Murphy has included additional funding of $20 million for Jobs NJ.
