Apprenticeship - Earn While You Learn !
What is Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeship is a formal training program registered through the State of Wisconsin, Bureau of Apprenticeship Standards. Apprenticeship combines on-the-job training with classroom instruction. Each apprenticeship program is 5 years in length providing the apprentice with comprehensive knowledge of the trade while working towards a career with great wages and benefits.
Apprentices learn under the supervision of a journey level skilled person, while working for an approved contractor.
Apprentices also attend classes at the Steamfitters Training School and an approved Technical College.
Earn While You Learn:
Unlike college, apprentices receive on-the-job training while getting paid. NO COLLEGE TUITION !!
The Steamfitters Training Fund covers the cost of an education worth over 34,000 and at the end of the five year apprenticeship your earning potential often exceeds that of most college graduates.
Along with that you will receive 45 college credits. Which means you are just a few credits away from
an Associate Degree.
