U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) Apprenticeship Program

Indiana Department of Correction, in partnership with USDOL Apprenticeship, helps train offenders with structured, on-the-job learning in traditional industries such as construction and manufacturing, as well as new emerging industries such as healthcare, information technology, energy, telecommunications and more. Registered Apprenticeship helps connect newly trained ex-offenders with employers looking for qualified workers. This supports their reentry into the community and can help them overcome the obstacles encountered by ex-offenders seeking employment.

There are currently 63 Registered Apprenticeship Occupations throughout the Indiana Department of Correction. Overall, 2013 enrollment averaged 2,300 participants with 915 offenders completing program requirements and earning USDOL certification.
