…Some things simply can’t be rushed!
The importance of construction apprenticeship programs.
In the construction trades, training highly skilled workers doesn’t happen overnight. Their journey begins as registered apprentices, individuals who endure rigorous classroom and on-the-job training. Once an apprentice completes his training, he’s considered journeyman, a fully educated tradesman, but not yet a master. The road from apprentice to master is difficult by design, ensuring that only the most thoroughly trained and experienced qualify to be the standard bearers.
A master tradesman possesses a comprehensive knowledge of his craft, which spans not just his specific practices but those, as well, that facilitate the various other aspects of the project. Still, a master tradesman is one person, and even the most straightforward construction project requires the efforts of many, from the architect through the local labor unions, the members of which, in their own diligence and skill, renew the master’s trust in them day in and day out.
