Governor Greitens has announced a plan to invest $3.6 million in new Registered Apprenticeship programs across the state.
The apprenticeship programs help to get students on the job training with professional supervision.
Those that complete the program get a nationally recognized credential.
A variety of businesses currently use apprenticeship programs. Missouri currently has about 400 existing Registered Apprenticeship programs, 13,000 active apprentices and hundreds of participating employers.
