What are Hospitality Sector Registered Apprenticeships?


Hospitality sector registered apprenticeships are career advancement initiatives for both the lodging and restaurant industries geared to strengthen America’s workforce. In partnership with the American Hotel & Lodging Association, the National Restaurant Association and the Minnesota Department of Labor & Industry, these on-the-job accredited training programs for Line Cook, Restaurant Manager, Kitchen Manager and Hotel Manager are currently available (and Hotel Cook and Maintenance Engineer coming soon). The program includes all the tools and resources needed to help guide your employees to a fulfilling hospitality career at no cost to you. Plus, grants may be available providing financial incentives to participate.


  • For employers, apprenticeship provides an opportunity to develop highly skilled workers and significantly strengthen labor retention by using a proven method to develop both current employees and prospective employees.


  • For employees, apprenticeship is an opportunity to earn while they learn hands-on training, advance their careers, and receive a nationally recognized industry certification.
