Effective on October 1, 2009, the State Apprenticeship Training Fund required all contractors and subcontractors working on State prevailing wage projects with prevailing wage determination dated on or after October 1, 2009 to register (Apprenticeship Training Fund Site) with the Division of Labor and Industry Prevailing Wage Unit prior to the commencement of work and to make certain contributions toward improving and expanding apprenticeship programs in the State.
