What is a Apprentice?
Posted On: Sep 13, 2008

What is an apprentice ?
An apprentice is someone who is learning a trade by working under the guidance of skilled workers of that trade, called journeymen. It is on-the-job training. You earn while you learn, and you are paid a wage from the first day you become a working apprentice. Apprentices are usually paid at about 50% of the journeyman rate of pay to start, but the wages are increased periodically, usually every six months, until you reach the full journeyman rate. It takes from two to four years to normally complete one of our programs. We offer apprenticeships at the The Joint Apprenticeship Training Center. Check out one of the other pages for more detailed information and remember……. 

Apprenticeship can yield a lifelong rewarding CAREER !!

Apprentices in the construction training program move from first period to eighth period apprentice before becoming a journeyman carpenter. Students learn through an innovative program that combines classroom instruction with hands-on training. Apprentices earn "skill blocks" as they increase their knowledge of basic construction techniques. This training supplements the training and experience they get while working on-the-job with journeyman carpenters.

Apprenticeship coordinators  manage the programs and monitor the progress of the individuals who enter the various trade disciplines.

Knowledge and training is what puts a skilled carpenter above other workers.
