Local 136 Apprentice Programs

Our Apprentices are required to spend 8,500 hours on the job, under supervision, over a five-year period; as well as successfully complete 246 hours of related classroom instruction during each of the years.

Apprentices will be paid while on the job, at a rate which is determined by the Collective Bargaining Agreement in effect at the time, and based on the number of years they have been in the program.
