Hear from Apprentices:

College was Boring for Me

"I have always been very active. I played sports in college - I loved that part of it. But sitting in a classroom all day and listening to a teacher lecture me and then having to write papers and do everything exactly the way they said it needed to be done, it was boring for me."

You Get Paid the Day You're in School

"I tried college. Working all summer just to pay for class wasn't working out for me. Here you get paid the day you're in school. You're getting paid to learn instead of paying to learn. When you start out as an apprentice that wage is pretty generous compared to other jobs' starting pay."
