Oregon Apprenticeship ROI Calculator
This interactive tool was designed to calculate the return on investment of apprenticeship programs in Oregon for industries in construction, manufacturing, healthcare and IT. The calculator looks at costs and benefits of having an apprenticeship program compared to hiring a skilled or journeyman-level worker. The site includes a resources tab complete with searchable glossary, occupation-specific median wage tables, and a methodology guide. The calculator has some default values for each of the four industries and custom inputs can be shared through a URL link or can download and print a PDF of their calculations. Two usability tests were conducted with stakeholders to inform the functionality and content of the tool. Visit the site.
