The Apprenticeship Program
Did you know that a good quality of life for you and your family is just a few
steps away? Launching a career as a union carpenter will place in your hands
skills that are in demand in this state’s construction industry. And, you
will be part of the strongest and most loyal organization in the country. And
the pay and fringe benefits are pretty good, too.
The Ohio Carpenters’ Joint Apprenticeship and Training Program offers one
of the top carpenter apprenticeship programs in the nation. More than 1,500
apprentices are enrolled in our four-year programs, offered at no cost to the
apprentice. A joint committee made up of union members and signatory contractors
oversee the apprenticeship program.
According to a recent
ABC News Report, 32 Percent of U.S. Employers Say
It’s Hard to Fill Jobs, and the most difficult jobs to fill in the U.S.
were those in the skilled trades — carpenters, plumbers and electricians.
