Apprenticeship Program

EARN WHILE YOU LEARN

Apprenticeship programs combine paid, on-the-job training and occupational skills in the classroom. Apprentices work with skilled, experienced and credentialed instructors to learn and gain the skills necessary for producing competent craftspeople. Each trade has a program which provides instruction under the training standards that were agreed upon by labor and management in accordance with State and Federal laws and is registered with the California Division of Apprenticeship Standards (DAS).  Depending on the trade, training periods can be anywhere from 2 to 5 years. 

To become an apprentice, applicants should do the following: 

1. Select an occupation for which you have an aptitude or some previous experience and the physical ability to perform.

2. Find out if you meet the minimum qualifications for that occupation.


3. Decide whether you can work under the required job conditions, some of which may be hazardous, dirty, uncomfortable or otherwise unpleasant.

4. Apply for an apprenticeship either directly to an employer in the occupations, the appropriate union, or the California Employment Development Department.

For further information or to apply, please contact Trade Unions directly.  See list below for apprenticeship opportunities.
