In the U.S., apprenticeship programs are offered through the National Cup Association as well as trade associations and local companies' associations. Construction-industry glaziers are generally users of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades.[1]

In Ontario, Canada, apprenticeships are offered at the provincial level and authorized through the Ontario College of Trades.[5]

Other provinces manage their own apprenticeship programs.
