The Department of Labor is tapping into the AHA and its professional membership groups to help expand health care apprenticeship programs across the country. As part of a DOL grant announced this week, the Dallas County Community College District has asked the AHA and its PMGs to scale its local apprenticeship programs to a national level. AHA and the PMGs will use funding from the grant to create curricula, training programs and nationally recognized certifications for successful apprentices in clinical and non-clinical health care professions.
