Apprenticeship Advisory Board

Also known as:
Apprenticeship Board
Active dates:2007 -

The board proposes occupational classifications and minimum standards for apprenticeship programs and agreements, and advises the Commissioner.


In 2007, the Legislature changed the Apprenticeship Advisory Council's name to Apprenticeship Board (see Laws of Minnesota 2007, chapter 135, article 7, section 2). 

The Apprenticeship Council was originally created in 1939, under the statutory authority of Minnesota Statutes 178.02.

The Apprenticeship Advisory Board was reviewed by the Legislative Commission on Planning and Fiscal Policy (LCPFP) in 2013 as part of their biennial duty required by Minn. Stat. 3.885 Subd. 11. The LCPFP's 2013 Recommendations called for keeping the board.

Advisory to:
Department of Labor and Industry

The Advisory Board includes three representatives of employer organizations, three representatives of employee organizations, and two public members. The assistant commissioner of children, families, and learning responsible for vocational education or designee shall be an ex officio member of the council and shall serve in an advisory capacity only.
