How Our Registered Apprenticeship Program Works
Typically, during the onboarding process, a new apprentice will meet with their assigned journey worker/mentor and receive a binder containing pertinent program information. Our Training and Career Coordinator meets regularly with the apprentice to evaluate progress, training progression and needs, and to address their questions or concerns. Each week, an apprentice has a certain number of related instruction and on-the-job training hours. The apprentice also completes quarterly progress reviews with their journey worker/mentor and our Training and Career Coordinator. As apprentices develop their skillset, their mentor will sign off on the trained skill, allowing them to move forward in the program. If any issues arise during the program, our Training and Career Coordinator will work with the apprentice to develop a solution. After key review periods, apprentices are eligible for a wage increase to match their progress.
