Building Apprenticeship Education Programs

Education Institutions

Fastport was selected by the US Department of Labor to be an Industry intermediary to expand Registered Apprenticeships. Since that time, our team has been key in facilitating public-private partnerships through Workforce Boards, educational institutions, associations, and the DOL. These partnerships serve as a lifeline for businesses, educational institutions and apprenticeship providers alike in terms of funding, ROI, and mitigating administrative burdens. Intermediaries are familiar with providing supportive services while serving as a go-between in both the private sector and the federal government.
