Apprenticeship

Apprenticeship is the key to the future of the Building Trades, and our economy in Southern California and throughout the United States. Apprenticeship offers a robust way to build a well-paying career without attending a four-year college.

Our affiliated local unions invest, nationwide, $1 billion in our joint labor-management training programs each year. In California alone, the total is $200 million. We are second only to the US military in the scope of our training. We work in partnership, day by day, with people from all sectors of our community to increase job opportunities.

Apprentices enroll in four-to-five-year programs. These combine classes with hands-on training in the field. Apprentices earn good wages and benefits while they learn, and they don’t graduate with student debt—their tuition is free.

Apprenticeships are organized by Trade. Please see the list below to find out more about each program.
