Pipefitter and Steamfitter apprenticeships
Even as college costs spiral, Minnesota is facing a shortage of skilled laborers in certain industries. Our apprenticeship system offers an opportunity for you to start earning money instantly, gaining experience and salary increases through on-the-job training and classroom instruction.

Apprentices start at 40% of the Journeyman wage rate. The total wage package includes fringe benefits such as medical, dental and optical insurance plans, retirement plans and more. The apprenticeship program is for a 5-year period and requires 9,000 on-the-job hours of work. Additionally, all apprentices attend 216 hours of related instruction for each year while in the program.
