Item 1. A Program Number is a generated number assigned to a program sponsor when a program is registered in the Office of Apprenticeship’s Registered Apprenticeship Partners Information Data System (RAPIDS).

Item 1. A Sponsor Name is any person, association, committee, or organization operating an apprenticeship program and in whose name the program is (or is to be) registered or approved.

Item 1b. An Employer is any person or organization employing an apprentice whether or not such person or organization is a party to an Apprenticeship Agreement with the apprentice.

Item 3. Occupation Type refers to the following three training approaches listed below.

Item 3a. A Time-based Approach measures skill acquisition through the individual apprentice’s completion of at least 2,000 hours of on-the-job learning as described in a work process schedule.

Programs utilizing this approach must still require apprentices to complete an on-the-job learning component of Registered Apprenticeship. The program standards must address how on-the-job learning will be integrated into the program, describe competencies, and identify an appropriate means of testing and evaluation for such competencies. An apprentice must be registered in an approved competency-based occupation for 12 calendar months of on-the-job-learning.

Item 3c. A Hybrid Approach measures the individual apprentice’s skill acquisition through a combination of specified minimum number

of hours of on-the-job learning and the successful demonstration of competency as described in a work process schedule.

Item 6. Credit for Previous On-the-Job Learning Experience (Hrs., Mos., Yrs.) is granted by the program sponsor based upon documented evidence provided by the apprentice. An apprentice must complete a minimum of six months on-the-job learning regardless of credits for previous experience awarded.

Item 7. Credit for Previous Related Instruction Experience (Hrs., Mos., Yrs.) is granted by the program sponsor based upon documented evidence provided by the apprentice.

Item 9a. Total Length of Related Instruction is the duration spent in related instruction in technical subjects related to the occupation, which is recommended to be not less than 144 hours per year.

Item 10a. Apprentice’s Entry Wage (dollar amount paid): A sponsor enters this apprentice’s entry wage.

Item 11. Complaints: Identifies the individual or entity responsible for receiving complaints (29 CFR 29.7(k)).


Part D: To Be Completed By Registration Agency

Item 4. Apprentice Identification Number: RAPIDS encrypts the apprentice’s social security number and generates a unique

identification number to identify the apprentice. It replaces the social security number to protect the apprentice’s privacy.



*The submission of the apprentice’s social security number is requested. The apprentice’s social security number will be used for program management purposes, such as verification of the apprentice’s period of employment and earnings to align with Department of Labor’s job training and employment program performance indicators for measuring performance outcomes. The Office of Apprenticeship will use wage records through the State Wage Interchange System needs the apprentice’s social security number to match this number against the employers’ wage records. Also, the apprentice’s social security number will be used, if appropriate, for purposes of the Davis Bacon Act of 1931, as amended, U.S. Code Title 40, Sections 276a to 276a-7, and Title 29 CFR part 5, to verify and certify to the U.S. Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division, that the apprentice is a registered apprentice to ensure that the employer is complying with the geographic prevailing wage of the occupational classification. Failure to disclose an apprentice’s social security number on this form will not affect the right to be registered as an apprentice. Civil and criminal provisions of the Privacy Act apply to any unlawful disclosure of social security numbers, which is prohibited.



Persons are not required to respond to this collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average five minutes per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. The obligation to respond is required to obtain or retain benefits under 29 U.S.C. 50. Send comments regarding this burden or any other aspect of this collection of information including suggestions for reducing this burden to the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration, Office of Apprenticeship, 200 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Room C-5321, Washington, D.C. 20210 (OMB Control Number 1205-0223).
