Apprenticeships, the best start to a construction career, are “Earn While You Learn” programs that allow you to work learning your trade during the day while taking classes nights or weekends. Come and learn how women can succeed in construction careers.
Most apprenticeships require entrants to have basic math and English skills, HS diploma or GED, physical ability to do manual labor, access to transportation and to be drug free.
Tradeswomen Inc. will have specific information about upcoming opportunities in the “List trades” as well as other apprenticeships. Some craft apprenticeships are only open for application a few days a year and require qualifying tests to be considered for entry into the trade. Electricians, Plumbers and Fitters, Sheetmetal and Operating Engineers are examples of list trades. You must be ready in advance! Be at the top of the list!
