Whether it’s in the workplace or in the classroom, the skills apprentices gain lead to challenging, rewarding and profitable jobs in an industry that provides tremendous opportunities.

Providing hands-on training for people who enjoy learning by doing, LiUNA apprentices:

  • are paid while gaining work experience
  • receive wages increase as level of skill increases
  • do not pay for their education

About 90 per cent of apprenticeship training is provided by employers in the workplace. The remainder involves classroom instruction and theory, which is provided at each Local’s Training Centre. Apprentices from LiUNA training are considered by employers to be among the most productive, conscientious, qualified and safety-oriented individuals in the industry.
