So what exactly is a Registered Apprenticeship Program?
An Apprenticeship program is learning in the classroom with hands-on experiences while working on the job to put that practice into real life. But don’t worry — when on the job, an experienced Insulator will guide you on the best practices and be an example of what it looks like to graduate from the program.
Not all Apprenticeship programs are created equal.
There are multiple benefits that come with going through a Registered Apprenticeship Program. Because an accredited apprenticeship program meets all of the requirements set forth by the U.S. Department of Labor Office of Apprenticeship, the training you are getting in the classroom is verified as the best way to learn the trade.
Besides the little or no cost education, apprenticeships offer a look into the day to day work you’ll be doing in your trade. Below is a list of the numerous benefits included in training through an apprenticeship:
Learn to be a Mechanical Insulator while you earn a living
Apprenticeships enable you to start working and earn a decent, living wage while you learn key skills and gain the qualifications that future employers want. As your skills progress, so will your pay. This not only helps out your bank account, but also helps keep you actively engaged in your apprenticeship.
One of the largest advantages of getting the qualifications you need in your field, while being able to put the skills you learn into practice at the same time, is that someone will always be on-hand to show you how things are done. If you have any questions about techniques, terminology or anything related to the industry, you can instantly ask your mentors, co-workers, or managers.
