If you’re running a business in the trades industry, you already have “apprentices.” Less experienced staff will always be learning from journeymen – but by registering your apprentices with a state-approved apprenticeship training program, like CITC, you receive financial benefits.
While your state-registered apprentices are gaining experience and knowledge you pay them at their skill level.
Plus, by ensuring your apprentices get both on-the-job and classroom experience you’ll develop the most competent, efficient, skilled staff possible. You’ll be able to bill more jobs and be confident that your skilled team will rise to the task.
By becoming a partner in training with your current workers and joining the program, you’re ensuring the future vitality of your workforce and your company.
CITC serves the State of Washington with 9 campus locations. The Apprenticeship Program is designed to help contractors. We are constantly expanding and are happy to talk with you about how best to set up classes close to your business headquarters.
In an effort to combat the projected shortfall of skilled workers in the construction industry, Washington State is making substantial moves to promote investment in a trained work force. As of January 2005, all State public works projects of one million dollars or more require that "no less than fifteen percent of the labor hours be performed by apprentices."
Skilled workers are safer workers. Financially, hiring apprentices just makes sense.
