The College of Southern Idaho is expanding the Workforce Training Center Apprenticeship Program to the Burley/Rupert area and the Wood River Valley. The first Program to be offered will be a Plumbing Apprenticeship.
The Plumbing Apprenticeship program will be offered at the Mini-Cassia Center and the Blaine County Center starting Fall 2017. This program allows working individuals the opportunity of advancement into a well-established career field through a combination of night classes and on the job training with a licensed journeyman. This four-year program requires participants to attend 144 hours of classroom training per year and 8-thousand hours of work experience throughout the entirety of the program.
Within the classroom, Apprentices take courses in mathematics for plumbing, blueprint-reading, drafting techniques, welding, and safety practices. Passing the classes and a successful completion of the journeyman’s license exam will provide the knowledge and experience to be recognized as a well-qualified professional in the plumbing industry.
To qualify for entrance into the program, applicants must be 16 years or older and employed by a licensed plumbing Contractor. Classes begin in August 2017. For more information about the program or to register, contact CSI Apprentice Coordinator, Katrina Oksten at 208-732-6382.
