For Apprentices it takes drive, dedication and determination to see an apprenticeship through to licensure. The apprenticeship is overseen by the state ad takes three years at a minimum. The work is hard, in the elements, and at a substantial work pace. Experience in construction, manufacturing or mechanical environments lends itself best to this trade.
For Journeymen and Project Managers, high knowledge of the UPC Code, project scheduling, materials ordering and a strong track record of keeping jobs on a schedule are a must. Leading and training apprentices in not just job completion but in materials, tools, safety, code and work ethic must be the norm.
