What is Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeship is career education combining extensive on-the-job training and related classroom instruction. Apprenticeship usually lasts four years. During this time, the apprentice works under the supervision and guidance of a skilled craftsperson.

Apprentices are full time employees and earn a wage while in training. An apprentice’s pay generally starts at about 50 percent of the experienced craftsperson and increases throughout the apprenticeship.

Classes are held at night for 18 weeks . The total number of classroom hours is determined by the curricula of the respective trade. ABC apprentices must receive a minimum of 144hours of classroom instruction each year.

ABC Nevada trains apprentices in Electrical and Low Voltage, Carpentry, Sheet metal, and Plumbing.  Employers participate as “sponsors” by employing the apprentice full time in the trade.
