(WHTM)– It’s National Apprenticeship Week and local advocates highlighted the success of apprenticeship programs and the need for more.

State Rep. Christina Sappey (R) was at the capitol to discuss how registered apprenticeship programs are important for improving job quality and creating good-paying jobs. Lieutenant Governor Austin Davis says it’s something many don’t have access to.
