Custom In-House Apprenticeship Program


The Apprenticeship Mission for Our Clients

Recruiting and retaining skilled employees can be challenging. By becoming an approved apprenticeship program reduces the need for unions and other expensive recruitment programs by creating a flow of candidates who are already screened and trained. The cost of wages for apprentices is less than that for regular employees. Additionally, apprentices who complete this proposed program often feel a commitment to their work and loyalty to their employer.
