Do you want a rewarding career in a growing industry? Do you want higher pay and benefits, and opportunities for advanced education and training?
Apprenticeship connects job seekers looking to learn new skills with employers looking for qualified workers. Employers, employer associations, and joint labor-management organizations, known collectively as apprenticeship sponsors, provide apprentices with instruction that reflects industry needs.
Apprentices receive paid on-the-job learning and academic instruction that equip them with the portable skill sets needed to advance in their chosen field. The result is workers with industry-driven training and employers with a competitive edge.
How it Works in Construction
Construction workers often enter the field as unskilled helpers, and work closely with an experienced professional to learn a trade. Apprenticeships are primarily obtained through a trade union and can involve a classroom element as well as hands-on learning. Some organizations also have student chapters at colleges and universities with construction management programs nationwide and construction-related degree programs.
