Earn While You Learn
Local 926 foresaw the need of training to generate skilled tradesmen; therefore, in 1969 we built and began operation of the Joint Apprenticeship & Skill Upgrade Program. The Joint Apprentice Committee offers a comprehensive Training Program. Operating Engineers receive 8,000 hours of on-the-job training.
Apprentices will be required to attend school (classroom and related training) in subjects related to the trade for at least 196 hours per year, for each year of their Apprenticeship. The Apprentice will receive two (2) weeks of related instructions when first indentured and one (1) week each quarter thereafter at the Field Training Site. The Apprentice will not receive any pay for related instruction or classroom instruction.
