Last week, the House approved legislation that aims to bolster skills-based training programs through greater assistance and funding. The National Apprenticeship Act of 2021 will also assist youths and adults in accessing proper instruction in the skilled trades, says the National Association of Home Builders. One provision allows for greater flexibility for apprenticeship program structuring, which helps address one of the biggest challenges to running a skills program, says NAHB. The Home Builder Institute may now edit its curriculums to become more accessible. The legislation also aims to promote diversity in the national apprenticeship system.
