What is an apprenticeship?  Apprenticeships are occupational training programs that combine supervised on-the-job training (OJT) experience with classroom instruction, usually taking only 4 years to complete.  This is a career opportunity where men, veterans, women, and minorities are encouraged to apply! 

How do I become an apprentice?  Of course you must meet minimum qualifications, but get started by submitting a completed application and registration agreement. An apprentice is usually a full-time employee who is learning while earning, don’t delay!  Get on our List of Eligible Applicants TODAY!  Contact Julie Fleck, the Apprenticeship Coordinator at 503-557-1203 or by E-mail
