Apprenticeship & Education

One of the career paths is being part of an apprenticeship program designed to give a worker skills in a particular trade that are in high demand and appreciated by employers in Wyoming and throughout the country.

Many Wyoming construction contractors will sponsor their entry level employees after they complete an introductory phase to determine if the employee likes the construction industry; and is ready, willing and able to work during the day and commit to attending classes in the evenings. Most apprenticeships are completed within a 3 or 4 year period. The apprentice will participate in classroom sessions as well as work alongside a skilled tradesperson on their way to earning a license in the skilled trade they choose.

Wyoming has numerous Apprenticeship programs which will continue to assist Wyoming in meeting our need for a skilled workforce. Apprenticeships are a unique flexible training program which utilizes job related technical training and on the job learning experiences. Apprenticeships enable trainees to gain a license or certificate to practice in their craft. Most of the training is done while working for an employer who helps the apprentices learn their trade or profession.
