When will construction apprenticeship classes be offered?
The first class for construction apprentices in Nevada, which started in September, will be open to students who have a bachelor’s degree in construction management from an accredited school, according to the state.
Students must pass a state exam to get their permit to take the class, but they can also take online classes and register online for classes at the Henderson, Nev., home of construction company Halliburton.
The class will be in Henderson this summer, but no dates have been set yet.
The state will provide students with a one-time stipend of up to $250 per week, and students can take the classes at any Henderson construction site they want.
The first construction apprentices training class, known as the Master Builders Program, will offer construction apprentices at two different Henderson sites, said Chris Johnson, executive director of the construction apprentices program.
It will include an emphasis on advanced technical skills and practical training in construction, Johnson said.
“We are looking for people who have been working in construction for a long time,” Johnson said, “and we want to have the best of both worlds.”
The training program was originally set up to train construction workers in the United States, but now it’s open to all construction apprentices.
A study released by the nonprofit National Association of Contractors (NAC) found that the training program has been successful, with graduates having higher salaries than those who didn’t take it.
The NAC study found that graduates of the Master Builder Program have earned $1,726 more than those in the non-Master Builders Training Program training program, which has a $7,500 stipend for training.
Students who receive construction apprentices can also earn up to 40 percent more in their first year of employment.
“They earn more in a year than those that don’t get an apprenticeship, which is pretty good,” Johnson noted.
A second class will start next year, and Johnson said it will focus on people who are looking to build homes or offices.
