Apprenticeship Programs

The Western Apprenticeship Coordinators
Association sponsors a number of apprenticeship programs, as listed below, through its member organizations.



People 17-18 years or older, with a high school diploma or G.E.D.*, may apply to learn and earn on the job for a well-paying career in the construction industry. All apprenticeships provide a comprehensive benefit package (medical, dental and vision insurance, a pension plan, etc.), job security and safe working conditions. *Some programs allow for the G.E.D. to be completed concurrent with the apprenticeship.

Apprenticeship programs are open to males, females, minorities and most demand excellent physical coordination coupled with mental ability, specifically math and analytical skills. Manual coordination and physical ability is a must.

Programs run from 2 to 5 years and combine on the job training under master craftspersons with classroom learning. All apprenticeship programs are free and most include books and paid college credits. 

Each program varies and specific details are available from individual apprenticeship coordinators. These contacts and general information are available from:
