Apprenticeship Programs: A How to Guide for Small Businesses
June 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Finding qualified employees is daunting, but it is a crucial step to scale your business for success. Apprenticeship programs solve this problem by training employees to gain the skills needed to complete a specific trade or profession. Employees are compensated and able to receive a certification, and business owners can add qualified talent to their team.
Join the Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Wacif, and guest panelists for a workshop that will teach you how to start an apprenticeship program and the key issues to consider and address when hiring talent.
