  13. CHALLENGES CHALLENGES The organizational culture in PR does not see labor unions as facilitating agents. The employers do not give way to any initiative involving the unions' participation. Many occupations in the construction industry are not regulated by the state. Therefore, credentials or licenses are optional to work on the projects. Employers and workers prefer a short-term education with little investment in this field. Post-secondary institutions need robust direct job placement programs for their students. The possibilities of establishing recurring agreements with employers are limited.

  14. WHERE ARE WE GOING? WHERE ARE WE GOING? Continue the expansion of registered apprenticeships in advanced manufacturing (supply chain), information technology, construction, health care, hospitality, energy, and transportation. Increase workforce development partnerships to use resources effectively. Engage in systems-building initiatives that further the interests of expanding registered apprenticeships in targeted industries. Support the efforts of the workforce system as they develop and expand apprenticeships in Puerto Rico. Advocate for equity and inclusion within the PR apprenticeship system. A new public policy for DEIA is under State Board review for approval

  15. Efforts to engage Educational Institutions Efforts to engage Educational Institutions The Apprenticeship staff has met with several Post Secondary Schools on many occasions to register them as sponsors; however, the meetings and long hours of discussions have not produced any sponsor of this kind. Why have these institutions not been fully involved? The need for a sponsor or a co-sponsor Issues with their board of members Many don t have updated curricula to satisfy the industry s needs. Institutions that have spoken University of PR: R o Piedras, Carolina, and Bayamon Campuses, Huertas College, EDIC University, ICPR College, Mech Tech, Colegio Universitario de San Juan (a municipality institution of San Juan), and NUC University One involved: Polytechnic University of PR
