TRAINING TODAY FOR TOMORROW!
The purpose of the apprenticeship program is to develop a qualified, adaptable, and most important, a safe workforce. A skilled workforce creates profit for both the worker and the contractor. Owners of projects expect contractors to produce a quality project at a competitive price. And contractors must have skilled, safe workers to be competitive. That’s where apprenticeship comes in.
Apprenticeship combines both classroom training to learn the theory of the trade, along with on-the-job training to gain practical experience
learn more or to apply
Each apprentice attends classroom training where he/she learns the theory of the apprenticeship trade. The use of tools of the trade, safety, job terminology, etc. are included in the classroom training. Apprentices learn the how and why something is done.
HVAC and Sheet Metal Apprentice classes are located in Portland, Oregon.
Apprentices are employed by Contractor Sponsors who are contractors who have agreed to hire and provide on-the-job experience under the supervision of their journeymen and foremen. Each apprentice has their work experience recorded and filed in the student's records.
