Apprenticeship Navigators Help Find Opportunities

Last May, the Dept of Workforce Development hired five “apprenticeship navigators” in different regions of the state to help potential workers find apprenticeship opportunities including the Wisconsin Pipe Trades affiliated unions. Apprenticeship is hands-on, post-secondary education like college but apprentices receive most of their training on the job for an employer providing a good wage and benefits. In this video, Plumbers Local 75 member Christina B. talks about switching from college to a plumbing apprenticeship.
