It starts with a job! Apprenticeships are a combination of on-the-job training and formal classroom instruction, all while earning an hourly wage from the employer. Each skilled trade apprenticeship has different standards and requirements for the application and length of the training period. Construction workers, electricians, ironworkers, plumbers, and roofers are examples of trades that offer apprenticeships.
