A well-trained, skilled and safe workforce is critical to quality construction. Accredited union apprenticeship programs form the foundation of this workplace. This ensures that journeymen and women are experienced professionals and that apprentices are gaining experience in the field and have proper guidance to become a fully qualified journey worker.

To become a fully qualified journey worker a construction craft laborer apprentice must complete:

  • At least 320 hours of classroom training;
  • 4,000 hours of on-the-job training;
  • Work experience in building construction, heavy highway construction and environmental remediation;
  • Classes in general construction skills and core labor skills;
  • Electives in several specialty markets.

Contractors and construction users who include construction craft laborer apprentices in their work crews enjoy reduced hourly labor costs while helping to train the workers they will need in the future.
