Thank You for Attending the July 27 IRAP Information Session

Thank you for attending our virtual information session on Industry-Recognized Apprenticeship Programs (IRAPs), in partnership with Dallas College, the American Society for Healthcare Human Resources Administration and Workcred. IRAPs combine a paid work experience with an educational component, resulting in an industry-recognized credential. Health care training areas include culinary services, sterile processing, MRI and supply chain, with more programs underway.

HASC encourages members to take advantage of this special opportunity, funded by the U.S. Department of Labor. The initiative can help you upskill and retain current health care staff, as well as recruit new employees for hard-to-fill roles that require specialized knowledge and experience.
