Mentor Support

Donovan: Piped Up for Advancement

“This was the best of both worlds. Today, I have a degree, a journeyman certificate and a job that I really enjoy.”


Mentor Support

Your Colleague. Your Coach.

When it comes to learning a trade, we in the construction industry find it's best to work together. This is why you'll find your mentor is a former apprentice, just like yourself, whose mastery today entitles them to teach their trade.

Your on-the-job training is conducted by a seasoned professional, a certified Journeyman, who has passed the same apprenticeship program. As you work on site and recieve on-site instruction from your mentor you’ll be paid for the hours you work and you learn.

As you progress in your apprenticeship, your pay will also increase on a regular basis, and upon completion of the program you will have doubled your starting pay.
