What is the Apprenticeship Program?
Our exclusive program is a standardized, company-wide internal certification system for our Conveyor Service Technician workforce. Employees that are recruited into the apprenticeship program are trained in-house during their first year. Once this initial training is complete, they’ll then begin the apprenticeship program where they’ll attend a formal training based at one of our schools. Employees that successfully graduate from our program will receive a certificate declaring their status as a Journeyman Conveyor Service Technician, therefore receiving the Journeyman wage set by their local Viacore branch.
This program is a structured 4-year program, where each year is the equivalent of one level. Apprentices will receive evaluations along the way, so they’ll be able to track their advancement. Our apprentices are expected to progressively develop their knowledge and skills throughout the 4 years, until they are fully trained and qualified as a Journeyman Conveyor Service Technician.
