Registered Apprenticeship is post-secondary education like a college or university, but there’s a BIG difference! Apprentices learn a portion of their skills in a traditional classroom. However, the majority of training is done on-the-job, all while getting paid and working towards a career! An apprentice must be employed with and sponsored by an Approved Trainer, such as Dave Jones, Inc., in order to attend school.
All registered apprentices start as laborers in the field. Interviews are conducted bi-annually to move into the apprenticeship program. To be considered for an apprenticeship, please visit our careers page to apply for the laborer position you’re most interested in today!
Youth Apprenticeship allows employers like Dave Jones, Inc. to hire high school juniors or seniors for a one or two-year apprenticeship. During the apprenticeship, the student continues toward high school graduation and takes courses related to the profession, while gaining real on-the-job experience with the employer as well.
In the time it takes to get a 4-year degree, you could be years into an apprenticeship with steady pay, career advancement opportunities, job security and no college debt. If you have a hard time picturing yourself working indoors year-round, or sitting behind a desk, a career in the trades may be perfect for you!
If you are interested in youth apprenticeship opportunities with Dave Jones, Inc., please reach out to your school to career coordinator or guidance counselor to receive more information on how to get started!
