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

NASTAD (The National Association of State and Territorial Apprenticeship Directors)

  • The National Association of State and Territorial Apprenticeship Directors

    The National Association of State and Territorial Apprenticeship Directors (NASTAD) is a forum for states and territories that have their own apprenticeship laws that govern Registered Apprenticeship training programs within their state or territory. Nationally, there are 25 states overseeing their own apprenticeship programs and 25 states where Office of Apprenticeship offices are located.

    NASTAD was established to promote and achieve an effective national apprenticeship system and to provide information and support to its members, as well as examples of best practices.

  • NASTAD members recognize the need to:
    • Work together in the adoption of uniform systems for the continuous improvement in the training and welfare of apprentices.
    • Bring into existence cooperative relationships among employers and labor, not only in industries where Registered Apprenticeship exists, but also into new industries where Registered Apprenticeship can expand.
    • Promote Registered Apprenticeship and its expansion as an economic asset to the nation and to all who participate.
    • Work as an equal partner with the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship to achieve stability and recognition of the Registered Apprenticeship model.
    • Maintain the most comprehensive brain trust on Registered Apprenticeship issues and to make available to its members the benefits of this wide range of expertise.

    Member states and territories are recognized by the United States Secretary of Labor as the official apprenticeship agency for federal apprenticeship purposes and serve as the registration agency for apprentices and programs. This recognition is detailed in the Code of Federal Regulations Title 29, Part 29.
