Apprenticeship Advisory Board
Function: The board proposes occupational classifications and minimum standards for apprenticeship programs and agreements, and advises the Commissioner.
Active dates:2007 -
2007 Minn. Laws Chap. 135 Art. 7 Sec. 2 changes the Apprenticeship Advisory Council's name to Apprenticeship Board. Please see information under "Apprenticeship Advisory Council" for the history of this group. The Board appears to file with the MN Secretary of State's Office as "Apprenticeship Advisory Board", that is why we have entered the Board in our database with that name.
"The Apprenticeship Board was created in 1939, under the statutory authority of Minnesota Statutes 178.02" (from the Board's website 6/29/09).
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.
Department of Labor and Industry
The Advisory Board includes three representatives of employer organizations, three representatives of employee organizations, and two public members.
