The 85th Anniversary of the National Apprenticeship Act is being celebrated in 2022.

The Nebraska Rural Electric Association recognizes the urgent need to prepare and maintain an inclusive, diverse, and highly-skilled workforce that is capable of meeting the demands of the industry we serve and fortifying the economy.

Registered Apprenticeship programs enable employers to develop and train their future workforce while offering career seekers pathways to good, quality jobs and well-paying careers.

The Nebraska Rural Electric Association recognizes the role of Registered Apprenticeship in expanding opportunities in our workforce that are inclusive to all individuals to become apprentices and contribute to America's industries.

The Nebraska Rural Electric Association recognizes that Registered Apprenticeship, a proven and industry-driven training model, can train our workforce and build a pipeline into good, quality jobs in order to address our nation's pressing workforce challenges such as rebuilding our country's infrastructure, addressing critical supply chain demands, supporting a clean energy workforce, modernizing our cybersecurity response, and responding to core economy issues.

The Nebraska Rural Electric Association calls upon the rural electric systems in Nebraska to recognize the value of Registered Apprenticeship, and to promote industry awareness and expansion during the eighth anniversary of National Apprenticeship Week, November 14-20, 2022.
