The AHA’s Workforce Center yesterday participated in a Department of Labor summit for leaders in the ApprenticeshipUSA initiative, which aims to double the number of registered apprenticeships over the next five years. The Center is among 135 employers and stakeholders across all fields and industries that have agreed to participate in the program as a Leader of Excellence in Apprenticeship Development, Education and Research, which will allow the AHA to learn, lead and inform hospitals and health systems on how apprenticeships can build a skilled pipeline of workers seeking jobs in the health care field.
