Description

In today's increasingly competitive global economy, Americans need expanded access to training and industry-recognized certification in a number of fields, including technology. To strengthen workforce development and skills training, a bipartisan group of Senators recently introduced the Effective Apprenticeships Rebuild National Skills—EARNS Act (S. 2945).

Voices for Innovation held a webinar focused on how the EARNS Act will update and expand our nation's apprenticeship system, as well as support pre-apprenticeship programs.
