Earn While You Learn

We have an 'Earn while you learn' approach to our program. Apprenticeship classes are generally conducted after normal working hours to allow apprentices to gain on-the-job experience and bring home a respectable wage while they are in training. Some areas, however, provide classes during working hours.
