The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently recognized the AHIMA Foundation as a National Program for Apprenticeship.  The recognition helps to provide a centralized approval process and streamline the route for employers to become registered apprenticeship employers through the Foundation’s National Standard of Apprenticeships. 

Employer’s now have two options to become a registered employer for apprenticeships: 1) work with their state’s apprenticeship staff or 2) directly with the AHIMA Foundation. “This national recognition makes the process easier for employers to participate with AHIMA’s Foundation in meeting the needs of a changing workforce,” said AHIMA interim CEO Pamela Lane, MS, RHIA.  “Removing the barriers and streamlining the registration process benefits employers, apprentices and the healthcare industry at large – a ‘win’ for all.”
