Laborers' Apprenticeship

Program for Northern Nevada

The Laborers’ Apprenticeship Program for Northern Nevada is looking for qualified people to apply to our program.

We are Construction Craft Laborers (CCL’s) and work on all types of construction jobs including

highways and bridges, solar farm construction, commercial and industrial buildings, concrete construction, pipelines, and more.

From pouring and finishing concrete to pipelaying to asphalt paving (and so much more), we work alongside other construction trades to get the job done. CCL’s must be problem solvers and work well with others. The work of a CCL is physically demanding. Most of the work is done outdoors and in all kinds of weather.

Our apprenticeship program is 4000 hours of on-the-job learning (paid) and 300 hours of industry-related classroom and hands-on training. On average, it takes a little over two years to complete the program. Apprentices currently start out at 70% of the journeyworker’s wage ($22.72/hour) and work towards becoming a journeyworker (currently $32.45/hour). Employers pay an additional $15.85 per hour for your benefits including family medical, pension, vacation, and training. You can get up to 15 credits through Western NV College for your apprenticeship training (and we pay the tuition). Completion of the program can lead to a successful career with great pay, benefits and a secure retirement.

To apply, you must meet the following qualifications:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Be able to physically perform the work of the trade

Most Employers require:

  • Drug testing on a regular basis
  • Verification of your employment eligibility to work in the United States
