What is Apprenticeship?

  • Apprenticeship is a well organized and supervised method which industries use to train people with little or no prior knowledge of a craft or trade, to become capable, qualified craftsmen or journeymen. It is an "earn while you learn program". The "on-the-job" portion of the training is a full time, well paid job.

  • The apprentices are employed workers. They have a contract which includes regular wage increases and diversified training.

  • You will gain experience using the most modern practices.

  • You will work under the direction of a competent journeyman who will teach you the trade in the shop and at the job site.

  • You will attend one day of class every two weeks.  From August to May.

  • Homework is done online. You will be required to have access to the internet.
