Workforce Wednesday: Construction Apprenticeships


This week on Workforce Wednesday, a look at the four apprenticeships available in the field of construction, and how you can get started.

The four types of apprenticeships we are looking at this week include carpentry, millwright work, scaffold building, and pile driving.

An entry-level apprenticeship can net around a base pay of $23 an hour. That includes $10 an hour into retirement and about $10 an hour for health benefits. Those amounts increase as you advance within the program.

Requirements for starting an apprenticeship include being over 18 years of age, having a high school diploma or equivalent, having a valid driver’s license, being an Alaskan resident and passing a drug test.

Applicants are being accepted through January of 2018 to start work in May and April.
