Shortening the time for training new employees is desired, as this will mean reduced cost for the organization. The faster a new employee is a “full member” of the staff, the more income can be generated for the company. We have followed a pilot apprentice program where able to see what worked and what did not. The organization has struggled with high turnover and long training time. They introduced an apprenticeship based training, but due to circumstances within the organization, the training program “crumbled”. For a while the mentors had increasingly different ways of training the apprentices. In this paper we suggest how one can develop and implement a training regime that will work over time. This will contribute towards knowledge management initiatives in the organization as it will help knowledge sharing not only between mentor and apprentice, but also between the mentors and the rest of the organization.
