The Future of Skilled Trades Training: Launch Your Online Apprenticeship Program
Introducing Interplay Learning’s Comprehensive Offerings
The top provider for immersive skilled trades training announces flexible options for starting and managing an online apprenticeship program
AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Interplay Learning, the leading provider of immersive skilled trades training, today introduced a comprehensive range of offerings that equip organizations to quickly launch flexible, online apprenticeship programs and qualify for valuable opportunities in the fast-growing utility-scale solar field.
Seize the Opportunities in the Solar Industry
Interplay’s apprenticeship packages help solar developers, EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) companies, and commercial-scale contractors set up registered in-house apprentice programs and meet standards for new business opportunities and/or extensive solar installation tax incentives available through the federal Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) passed in 2022.
“The IRA represents an enormous investment in solar installation and opens incredible new opportunities for developers, EPC companies, and contractors,” said Doug Donovan, founder and CEO of Interplay Learning. “Until now, the cost and complexity of in-house apprentice programs have been a barrier for many business owners. They simply didn’t have the resources to efficiently implement a program that would prepare new and existing team members for large-scale solar installation projects. But with Interplay’s apprenticeship packages, those businesses can establish their own registered apprenticeship training program that can be leveraged to take full advantage of the opportunities available through the IRA and drive growth.”
Unlock tax credits with Registered Apprenticeship Programs
The IRA offers up to 30% in tax credits on some large commercial and utility-scale solar installations. To qualify, 15% of total labor hours on the project must be completed by apprentices enrolled in a registered apprenticeship program approved by the US Department of Labor or State Apprenticeship Agency.
