Become an Apprentice
There are many advantages to becoming an apprentice that can be beneficial to you and your family.
The Registered Apprenticeship Program comes at little to no cost to the apprentice. In this modern era, people are being herded and pushed towards colleges and universities, ultimately having to take on thousands of dollars of student debt. A Registered Apprenticeship Program allows people to learn career skills at little to no cost.
The earn while you learn model has been proven to work for decades. Apprentices learn their chosen trade in two different ways. First and foremost, through on-the-job training. Apprentices go to work with a contractor that is signatory to their union and work side-by-side with highly skilled and highly experienced journeymen. Apprentices also attend classes at their training center either at night or on a designated day during the week.
A Registered Apprenticeship Program also guarantees the same benefits to apprentices as it does for journeymen. Apprentices are given family healthcare and retirement benefits such as a 401k and a pension plan. Starting a career in the construction industry is a great way to ensure that you and your family have a secure future.
