Students and job-seekers across Washington are discovering the power of construction apprenticeships. We have partnered with EdgeFactor to bring you a free toolkit for hosting your own apprenticeship event.
This event is designed to establish a common vocabulary around apprenticeship, clarify the application process, and develop partnerships with existing training programs. Sponsored by Washington Building & Construction Trades Council, Department of Labor & Industries, and Construction Center of Excellence.
There is a huge gap between the supply of skilled workers and the demand for those services. And, the training needed for trade careers is faster and less expensive than a four-year degree.
Through apprenticeships, construction workers get paid work experience, classroom instruction, and a portable, nationally-recognized credentials.
