Apprenticeship is a state-registered, formal training program that emphasizes on-the-job training under the supervision of a qualified tradesperson, as well as classroom instruction at Western. It is governed by the Bureau of Apprenticeship Standards (BAS) in cooperation with the local Joint Apprenticeship Committee (JAC).
Most apprenticeship training programs are three to six years in length. Apprentices work on-the-job in their trade under the supervision of qualified journeymen. They take courses in math, science and other technical subjects related to their craft. Most related classroom instruction takes place at the local vocational education colleges. Apprentices are paid on a progressive wage scale beginning from 40% to 65% of the journeyman's rate, depending on the specific trade.
