Do you want a rewarding career in a growing industry? Do you want higher pay and benefits, and opportunities for advanced education and training?
The industry has a number of expanding sectors, such as: delivery/logistics services, railroads, maritime, and trucking. These industry sectors incorporate on-the-job learning over time, technological expertise, and competitive compensation.
The Registered Apprenticeship model is well known and has served the training needs of a variety of businesses and industries over time. The basic components of the model are especially suited to the transportation industry.
The apprenticeship model helps participants attain high performance through a cohesive process which links formal instruction in the form of a degree or certification with a standardized process of delivering and measuring hands-on/on-the-job learning (OJL).
For decades, registered apprenticeship programs have been successful by combining on-the-job learning with classroom theory supported by a strong mentoring component. The apprentice goes through a structured program established by the employer that includes incremental wage increases until he or she completes the course of training.
