WIA Applauds House Education and Labor Committee for Focus on Apprenticeship

“I commend the House Education and Labor Committee for its focus on the importance of apprenticeship. Approval of the National Apprenticeship Act by the Committee highlights the critical role apprenticeship plays in our economy,” said Matt Mandel, WIA Vice President, Government and Public Affairs. “WIA is the National Sponsor of the Telecommunications Industry Registered Apprenticeship Program, which brought the apprenticeship model into the wireless industry for the first time and is the only program focused on 5G workforce training. The Committee paid strong attention to creating and expanding apprenticeship to new industries. This emphasis on promoting high-growth sectors, like the wireless industry, will spur economic growth and job creation and will help the U.S. win the global race to 5G.”
