Construction Trades Apprenticeship Program Debuts

By Ticker Staff | Oct. 10, 2017

The U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) Registered Construction Trades Apprenticeship Program is designed to help rebuild the skilled trades in the construction industry. The new apprenticeship program, being sponsored by Northwest Michigan Works!, is open to employers and job seekers in Antrim, Benzie, Charlevoix, Emmet, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Manistee, Missaukee and Wexford counties.

The one-year apprenticeship program provides apprentices with work-based learning and related technical instruction focused on entry-level construction positions. After completion of the apprenticeship program, apprentices will receive a national credential demonstrating proficiency as an entry-level carpenter. Northwest Michigan Works! will provide employers with technical assistance and administrative support throughout the program, reducing the additional USDOL paperwork often associated with apprenticeships.   

Employers can select apprentice participants from within their existing workforce or through the hiring of new employees. Employers interested in participating are encouraged to contact Evelyn Szpliet at Evelyn.Szpliet@networksnorthwest.org. Individuals interested in information or applying for an apprenticeship should call 800-442-1074.
