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

The chart shows progress towards the annual goal for the period from the December 2002 quarter through the September 2004 quarter. The data show steady progress toward the goal of 133,909 new apprentices for FY 2003, with the program reaching 98% of the goal in the quarter ending September 30, 2003. The previous year the program had reached 78,700 apprentices. Beginning in FY 2004, the goal of this measure reflects the number of new apprentices established by federal Registered Apprenticeship staff only, therefore the goal and outcomes will be lower. From the quarter ending December 31, 2003 to the quarter ending September 30, 2004 the program managed to reach 101% of its goal of 68,592 new apprentices. The previous year it had achieved 67,401 apprentices.
