LIUNA Training’s Construction Craft Laborer Apprenticeship Program takes much of the administrative and training burden off of the contractor. LIUNA’s training and apprenticeship programs offer marketing, recruitment, intake, training, tracking and data sharing. More importantly LIUNA’s training and apprenticeship programs develop qualified and safe workers.
All LIUNA apprentices are pre-screened and complete baseline training before being dispatched to a jobsite. LIUNA Training’s apprenticeship programs develop Laborers who become critical thinkers and efficient workers.
LIUNA Trained apprentices begin by learning the core construction skills that will form a foundation of safety and productivity, everything from general construction skills to OSHA, scaffolding to First Aid/CPR and Hazard Communication. With a solid understanding of the basics, the apprentice can move on to training in one or more areas of concentration: Building Construction, Heavy/Highway and Utility Construction, Masonry, Demolition and Deconstruction, Pipeline, Tunneling, Environmental Remediation, and Landscaping.
Apprentices start out earning a percentage of the journey worker wage and receive regular increases based on predetermined milestones. Apprenticeship gives a company a chance to invest in its future today by building a lasting workforce.
Since 1969, LIUNA Training and our North American training network have been the driving force behind the best-trained workforce in the construction industry. Years of research prove that a well-trained and safe workforce is a more productive workforce, one with low employee turnover and few lost-time injuries. Simply put, becoming a LIUNA signatory contractor is a good business decision that will help companies stay profitable.
