In 2019, the general assembly created the Colorado state apprenticeship resource directory (directory), established by the department of labor and employment (department), that lists registered apprenticeship program sponsors that operate programs in Colorado. The act expands the information the department requires apprenticeship programs to submit to include the credits, certificates, or other credentials earned or prepared for through a program; program completion metrics; and wage-related information. The directory must also include information regarding each program's registration information and registered apprenticeship program standards.
The act requires the department, in its efforts to promote awareness of the directory, to conduct annual outreach that includes providing technical assistance and resources to promote apprenticeship openings.
