TradesWork! for you and for your career.

Earn while you learn.

From Day 1, apprenticeship students earn a salary while they learn the skills they need to build a successful career.

Hands-on experience and on-the-job learning are the hallmarks of our programs. Students spend 90% of their time outside of the classroom mastering the skills the job market demands.

Graduation is just the beginning.

Land a job. We work closely with all of our graduates to find a job that matches their skill. In fact, we have a 98% placement rate of our graduates.

No debt. The rising cost of a four-year degree has left students in debt and making loan payments for years. Our graduates not only graduate with no debt, they graduate with valuable, sought after skills.

Salary. The average salary and benefits package for our graduates is $75,000 per year. With more experience and additional skill, this number will quickly grow to six figures.

Build a career.

Lifelong learning opportunities provide our graduates with options to chart a career path that matches their long range goals – from journey man to project manager to CEO, the world is at their fingertips. Economic Impact data 

Building the community.

Simply put, trades build our communities. The satisfaction our graduates receive when they see the skyline they helped build is constantly mentioned as one of the best things about their career.
