From the day you begin your apprenticeship, and all throughout the 3 or 4-year process, you earn a decent income. Even better, you never stop learning!
Apprentices work alongside experienced Journeymen craftsmen and women, people enjoy teaching because they’re proud of what they do and they understand the importance of training the next generation.
At first, the work you are expected to do is pretty simple. But as you gain more and more experience, and as you complete your annual 8-week formal training periods, your responsibilities become increasingly complex…and more financially rewarding!
Apprentices are paid a percentage of the Journeyman hourly wage, plus the same health & welfare and pension benefits as longtime members.
