Apprenticeship opportunities depend on industry needs. The actual hiring of apprentices is done by members of a Labor/Management apprenticeship committee using an unbiased selection procedure that is reviewed and approved by the Department of Labor. Openings are filled without regard to race, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, arrest record or marital status. We hold Pre-Apprenticeship Seminars twice a year.
