Apprenticeship is a path to a real career, with comprehensive training typically lasting 3-5 years. Apprentices receive a combination of on-the-job training and classroom instruction at state-of-the-art training facilities located throughout Iowa.
Apprentices learn a lifelong skill, obtain college credit and earn a salary with benefits and that begin the first day on the job, WITH NO STUDENT DEBT. All Apprenticeship programs are affiliated with a college and apprentices accrue college credit, covered by the affiliated unions. After completing the Apprenticeship Program, there are many paths to follow, including Journeyman, Foreman, Safety Director and more.
Our debt-free registered apprenticeship programs not only offer cutting-edge curricula in high-tech construction trades and college credit, but also a ticket to secure employment with higher earnings and great benefits. These earn-as-you-learn programs pay family-supporting wages and provide health care coverage and retirement benefits.
