Build a career working with heavy equipment. Apprentices are paid while learning new skills on the job. We call this earn while you learn. Apprentices work on the job with journey persons or skilled workers in our trade. Each apprentice must work 6000 hours (approximately 4 years), and are paid a percentage of journey level wages. Apprentice wages start at $31-$33 / hour with regular raises to more than $46-$47/hour.
