There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Boilerplates are templates that an organization can use and customize to develop their National Guidelines for Apprenticeship Standards, National Program Standards or local Apprenticeship Program Standards. The templates contain the required elements that an organization must include in their program's standards of apprenticeship.

Which Boilerplate is right for me?

To find the right Boilerplate, you must consider (a) how many employers will participate in your Registered Apprenticeship program, and (b) whether any intermediaries will be involved, such as a labor organization or a community-based organization. Consider the following:

"My program will have..." One employer Two or more employers
No intermediaries "Single Employer" Program "Employer Consortia" Program
One or more intermediaries "Jointly-Managed Single Employer" Program "Jointly Managed with Multiple Employers" Program
