Carpenter Apprenticeship Opportunity
The Carpenter Apprenticeship program in Georgetown Delaware, recognized by the state of Delaware, and the state of Maryland, is a registered program with both states. Our program is a four year program that runs from September to June. Apprentices come here one day a week and work the other four days with a contractor. They receive school hours, as well as jobsite hours. Our Apprentices get paid to come to school, and they also get paid at work. Our program is tuition free. The only cost to the Apprentice is the tools they will have to purchase. The tools cost $460.00. The books, and training are at no cost to the Apprentice. The Apprentice will receive the following benefits. Pension, Health plan, annuity, and a savings plan. All these benefits are based on hours worked. The first hour they start to work, they start earning benefits. The benefits do not come out of the Apprentices paycheck. The Apprentice will earn his paycheck, and the contractor pays his benefits for the Apprentice. For a first year Apprentice, he will earn $12.46 an hour paid in benefits for them. When they work 2,000 hours they will move up to the next year. Along with that, they will get about a $3.50 an hour raise every year. The Carpenters Training Center does have an entry exam. Information on how to sign up, is on our website @ https://www.carpentersofphila.com/ . On the website you will find instructions on how to register. The registration begins on April 15th.
