Welcome to the Missouri Apprentice Connect Web site (the "Site"). Missouri Apprentice Connect is intended for use only for lawful purposes by individuals seeking apprenticeships, cooperative education opportunities and other career-services related information; by training providers seeking apprentices, cooperative education opportunities and employer or business information; and by employers seeking apprentices, cooperative education programs, general training provider information, and/or related apprenticeship or cooperative education information (collectively "intended users").
This Site is a forum for training providers and organizations ("Employers") to offer apprenticeships to potential apprentices ("Apprentices"). The ultimate transaction between Employer and apprentice, however, does not occur on this Site and Missouri Apprentice Connect is not a party to any such transaction and will not be responsible or liable for any such transaction. Nothing in this agreement creates a joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship between Missouri Apprentice Connect and any user, Employee, Apprentice or other party. You agree that Missouri Apprentice Connect is only an intermediary that merely relays information about certain opportunities by and between registered Users, and provides Content of general interest to non-registered users. Missouri Apprentice Connect is not considered an employer with respect to your use of our services and the Site. Moreover, Missouri Apprentice Connect will not be responsible for any employment or training provider decisions made, for whatever reason, or for any posted apprenticeship or cooperative education opportunities on the Site. Users of the Site are responsible for all taxes and salaries occasioned by any transaction between Users.
