Make Sure Apprentices Record Their Hours

As required by DIR regulations, Apprentices must submit proof of their “on the job” hours and work experience. As part of their orientation, the Apprentices were given information about a website to be used to submit their hours, which can be accessed from any internet-capable device. Be sure to remind your Apprentices that they need to be reporting these hours onto the website in order for the hours to count. A copy of the Apprenticeship Rules and Regulations can be found here.
