Laborers’ Apprenticeship Program for Northern Nevada
The Laborers’ Apprenticeship Program for Northern Nevada is looking for qualified people to apply to our program. We are Construction Craft Laborers (CCL’s) and work on all types of construction jobs including highways and bridges, commercial and industrial buildings, environmental cleanup, pipelines, and more. From pouring and finishing concrete to pipelaying to asphalt paving, we work alongside other construction trades to get the job done. CCL’s must be problem solvers and work well with others. The work of a CCL is physically demanding. Most of the work is done outdoors and in all kinds of weather.
Our apprenticeship program is 4000 hours of on-the-job learning (paid) and 300 hours of classroom training (unpaid). It takes about two years to complete the program. Apprentices start out at 60% of the journeyworker’s wage (currently $16.35/ hour) and work towards becoming a journeyworker (currently $27.25/ hour). Completion of the program can lead to a successful career with great pay, benefits and a secure retirement.
To apply, you must meet the following qualifications:
• Be at least 18 years of age
• Be a legal U.S. citizen, a legal resident, or have a legal work permit
• Must be able to physically perform the work of the trade
• Comply with employers’ drug and alcohol policy
