(c) Subject to the approval of the Registration Agency, and in accordance with standards established by or under authority of this subchapter, joint trade apprenticeship committees and non-joint apprenticeship committees may develop standards to govern the training of apprentices and give such aid as may be necessary to effectuate the standards.
