Apprenticeship Trivia

In 1937, Congress passed the National Apprenticeship Law, aka the Fitzgerald Act, "to promote the furtherance of labor standards of apprenticeship." Via this Act, the Apprentice-Training Service (ATS) was established within the Department of Labor to carry out the objectives of the law. The ATS was later renamed the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training (BAT) and is, as of this writing, the Office of Apprenticeship under the US. Dept. of Labor's Employment and Training Administration division.
