From the birth of the Mahoning Valley Skilled Trades Expo in 2019 to creating a website that centralizes information about all of the region’s trade groups to partnering with educators to reintroduce trade work as a viable career path for students, there’s been a full-court press on to grow pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship programs.

It’s taken a bit of steam, but the engagement effort is starting to pay off. There’s a buzz, an energy, an excitement about careers in the skilled trades, and some actual, tangible results in growth in the ranks.

Take for example Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 396 in Boardman. There were 22 people in last year’s apprentice class (they’re first-year apprentices in 2024) and only three were older than 25, according to Marty Loney, business representative for the local.

“So, if you go back and do the time frame from 2019 to current, that fits perfectly in line with what we are trying to do and what we are trying to accomplish with those trade expos and getting out into the school districts, so it’s starting to work,” Loney said. “We knew

it was going to be a little bit of a haul. We knew it was going to take us a little time to get it established and tout it. We were able to secure some money from Mahoning County commissioners to be able to advertise and do some things we weren’t able to do in the past, and it’s been very helpful.”


Around 2019, and probably even a few years prior, a vision started to crystalize to engage the region’s educators and school counselors that there are viable career paths for students that don’t include college.

Fortunately, there were receptive partners like the Educational Service Center of Eastern Ohio and Trumbull County Educational Service Center, according to Gary Hartman, association services director for the Builders Association of Eastern Ohio & Western Pennsylvania.

“We knew where we wanted to get to, we just weren’t quite sure how to get to that point. With the help of a lot of administrators, counselors and other educational people we brought to the table, we were able to get a better grasp of what was going on with the schools, what they were doing with careers and career planning,

“From the feedback we are getting, we are seeing success with it.”

how they were teaching their students about other options,” he said.

In his six years with the builders association, Hartman said he’s “seen a massive change in school districts.”

“It’s phenomenal. It’s giving those kids an opportunity to explore other options for careers that are out there that they might now know about, and a lot of those careers are local here in the Mahoning Valley,” Hartman said.

Attitudes have shifted from 20 to 25 years ago, when, Loney said, schools began to remove wood shops, metal shops and mechanical drawing to focus on state testing and post-secondary education.

What happened many years ago hurt the skilled trades, which saw a drop in their apprenticeship programs. Contractors, too, were hurt by the transition. “They can’t grow their companies without people.

They can’t take on more work without having the manpower to do that,” Hartman said.

So, workforce development was a top goal of the engagement effort. Another was to support the self-funded apprenticeship programs and increase completion rates, making them more successful, Hartman said.

“From the feedback we are getting, we are seeing success with it,” he said. “Where we are seeing success is the average age of an applicant is much, much lower. The average age before was approximately 26 years old. Now, the average age is about 19 to 20.”

There also are higher success rates for program completion.

Said Loney of the goals, “A big portion of it was, No. 1, to engage potential apprentices. Two, to show there is a viable economic future. They can earn a living wage, pensions, annuities, retire with dignity, and health care. All of the things we pay for out of the respective trades. Three, we had to show the school district there is another option out there.”

International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BAC)

620 F Street N. W., Washington D.C. 20004



BAC craft workers build, repair and renovate structures, and portions of structures that are made of brick and other clay products, structural tile, concrete, cement, stone, marble, glassblock, terra cotta, tile, terrazzo, plaster, mosaics, castables and artificial masonry units made of any material. Their work includes laying, setting installation or application of all such materials and the preparation of all structures or components to receive such materials. The skilled crafts represented by the BAC, often called the trowel trades, are Bricklaying and Block Laying, Concrete Masonry, Plastering, Pointing, Caulking and Restoration, Refractory and Industrial Masonry, Stone and Marble Masonry, Terrazzo Work, Tile Laying and Mosaic Work.


Apprentices enter the trowel trades through apprenticeship with a local joint apprenticeship and training committee (JATC). JATC’s recruit, screen and select apprentice candidates and oversee their progress on the job and in the classroom. The length of apprentice-ship is three to four years, depending on the craft.

• Age requirement: 17 years minimum

• Testing: General Aptitude test

• Drug testing: yes

• Information needed: Valid ID, birth certificate, high school transcripts, or military service record, certification on completion.

• Requirements: explained at application interview

• Length of program: 4 years plus 8 week preapprentice training / 6,000 hours

• Scope of work: trowel trades

• Requirements: Physically capable of performing work of the trade

• Other Information: Every applicant is interviewed

journey workers or for both. They may be instituted to provide for long term career growth or they may be set up to respond to very specific local market needs. Those journey workers who choose to become full or part-time craft instructors must enroll in the IMI Instructor Certificate Program, a 200-hour teacher training program that counts toward college credit and can lead to a Bachelor’s Degree.


New apprentices are sometimes enrolled in pre-job training in their selected trowel trade before going to work for a contractor. Pre-Job training is 640 hours of hands-on experience in work-like situations combined with classroom work. This prepares new apprentices to be productive and earn their wage from the first day on the job. Trowel trades workers may continue to add to their skills throughout their careers. Advances and crosscraft training opportunities are provided to expand a worker’s craft skills, leading to greater work opportunities. Such programs can be geared for apprentices, for

What is it like to work as an electrician? You can have a specialty as a Lineman, an Inside Wireman, an Installer/Technician, or a Residential Wireman. Journeyman Lineman erect and maintain power lines, climb power poles, and work on communication lines. It’s highly skilled work that requires a great deal of concentration, skill and knowledge. Demand for this type of work will never go “out of style”… as long as folks use electricity. Journeyman Wireman wire the industrial plants and factories, the warehouses, the office buildings, the shopping centers small and large… when something goes wrong with the electrical system in such facilities, journeyman wiremen are the ones who are called. Residential Wireman are responsible for the repair and upgrade work in residential structures. With 90 million single-family homes in the U.S., demand just for the repair/upgrade work will never cease. What’s more, as more and more people buy computers, and buy items with electronic components that are sensitive to electric power quality, there’s more need for the Residential Wireman’s skills. Telecommunications -Installer/Technician are responsible for the wiring that makes the Internet and e-commerce possible. Communication industries rely on something installed everyday by our industry: wires and cables. When building owners and tenants have network wiring problems, they need a professional telecom installer/technician and he or she be-comes the most important person in the building! As a telecom tech working for one of our industry’s con-tractors, that person would be you.


Completion of apprenticeship doesn’t mean the end of education. The NJATC offers many classes and opportunities for journeymen to improve and add to their skills and knowledge. Graduating apprentices are able to obtain college credit for their apprentice-ship and

have the opportunity to pursue Bachelor or Associate degree programs. Instructors are able to pursue professional education training at the National Training Institute (NTI), which is co-sponsored by the NJATC and the University of Tennessee.


Each of the four types of electrical work (Inside Wireman, Outside Lineman, Installer Technician and Residential Wireman) share common skills and knowledge. Each also has other skills and knowledge, which are specific to that particular area of work. Be-cause of these differences, each type of work has a different apprenticeship program associated with it. Apprentices receive their training through the National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee of NECA and IBEW. It’s a model education partnership which produces the best-trained, most up-to-date electrical apprentices and journeymen in the country. In addition to receiving skill training on the job, our apprentices are provided trade related classroom training that produces competency and pride which lead to true craftsmanship. Quite often some local training committees provide special classes with hands-on training to support classroom lectures and discussions.

The Mahoning Valley Skilled Trades Expo drew about 5,500 students from Trumbull, Mahoning and Columbiana counties and portions of western Pennsylvania to the Canfield Fairgrounds over two days in September 2023 to learn about the trades, including hands-on through multiple active displays.

For 2024, the expo will be three days to accommodate the interest.

The event “opened a door, a pathway for us to get into the schools and build connections with counselors, build connections with teachers and administrators that we didn’t have in the past,” Hartman said.

It has led to a push for a website and other marketing efforts, “but probably the biggest thing is now we have over 500 kids enrolled in pre-apprentice programs,” he said.


The website is

It’s the information hub about all of the skilled trades in the Mahoning Valley. There, you’ll find information about the multiple trades, including application information, job postings and other career resources.

“What’s really nice about that is you can get information on all the different crafts,” Loney said.

Plus, it’s delivered in a way younger generations access information — on the web, either through a computer or handheld device.

Also, it gives counselors and educators another tool and have valuable information for other young people to find a career path.


There’s been progress made, but the idea is to keep going.

One way that can happen is peer-to-peer engagement. In fact, it’s happening already.

Loney said Local 396’s training officer took an apprentice back to his home school to speak with students there.

“When they see it peer-to-peer, it makes it a little bit easier. I think we keep getting our name out there, running commercials, the billboards we have, and you keep that buzz going,” Loney said. “But you also reinforce it by going to them and saying, ‘listen, here is one of your own. You guys know this kid because he just got out of school two years ago, you know him, and here’s what it looks like in his world now.”

Also key, said Hartman, is to stay engaged in partnerships.

“When the door is open (and) you have a seat at the table, make sure you show up for dinner. Don’t take it for granted,” he said, adding the partnership between the builders, the trades and school career counselors and other educators “are just fantastic to bring the opportunities into the schools.”

Pre-apprenticeship programs already exist in schools in Trumbull, Mahoning and Columbiana counties. Part of the wave of effort is to grow into western Pennsylvania with the same sort of programming, Hartman said.

The website is the information hub about all of the skilled trades in the Mahoning Valley. There, you’ll find information about the multiple trades, including application information, job postings and other career resources.

Construction Craft Laborers perform a variety of highly specialized tasks that include: electric and pneumatic drills, electric and hydraulic boring ma-chines, setting explosives for heavy construction, using laser guidance equipment for pipe placement, and utilizing surveying and measuring devices. As construction becomes increasingly computerized, construction laborers also control high-tech input devises like GPS and robotic pipe cutters. Construction la-borers work jointly carrying out assigned construction tasks or may work alone, reading and interpreting blueprints and specifications with little or no supervision.

Building construction requires construction laborers to prepare and place foundational footings. Additionally, they erect a majority of scaffolding used to perform vital building tasks. Construction laborers handle operate machines; for example, they mix mortar or operate a machine that pumps concrete, grout or cement. At hazardous waste sites, construction la-borers prepare the site and safely remove asbestos, lead mold, and other hazardous materials. Construction laborers operate, read, and maintain air monitoring and other sampling devices.

At heavy and highway construction sites, construction laborers place and slope concrete and asphalt on roadways, and install sewer, water, and storm drain pipes. To prepare highway work zones, construction laborers control passing traffic and install barricades, cones, and markers.

At pipeline or transmission construction sites, construction laborers clear the right-of-way, install engineered erosion control products, rigging, sandblasting, coating, and cathodic protection. Also, at gas distribution construction sites, construction laborers locate underground utilities, perform pipe fusing, residential and commercial meter installations, traffic control, and project restoration.


The purpose of the apprenticeship program is develop a qualified, versatile, and safe construction laborer. Contractors must have a skilled and safe workforce to produce a quality project at a competitive price for project owners. The apprenticeship program consists of 4,000 hours of on-the-job experience and a mini-mum of 432 hours of classroom related training before graduating as a Journeyper-

son. As an apprentice, you will be employed by a signatory contractor who will pay you an appropriate wage and benefit package, and you’ll be working side-by-side with a qualified Journeyperson.

Like any industry, construction continues to evolve and change. Work opportunities that were once plentiful may decrease over time, while jobs we hadn’t dreamed of may suddenly be in high demand. That is the power of training, no matter how much construction changes LIUNA training makes sure our workforce stays ahead of the curve. The power of specialty training can also build a recession-proof career for la-borers. From accredited curriculum to instructor certification, our training center has the programs and services to meet the needs of laborers, union contractors and the industry. Additionally, our partnership with the Cuyahoga Community College enable a laborer to reach three benchmarks: Journeyperson Laborer, a Certificate of Proficiency from Tri-C, and an Associate Degree in Construction Technologies.

Roofers and Waterproofers work on a variety of types of buildings, protecting those facilities against water intrusion and ultimate damage to the structure and its contents. Roofing in the commercial and industrial sector is generally of the built-up type or the single-ply category. In built-up roofing, layers or piles of felt are set in hot bitumen over insulation boards to form a waterproof membrane. A separate category of roofing is the modified bitumen system that may be applied with hot bitumen or torched-on with high in-tensity propane burners.


Apprenticeship programs sponsored jointly by labor and management on the local union level supply employers with the highly skilled workers who apply the quality roofing and waterproofing systems that keep America’s buildings dry. Apprentices learn their craft by training on the job under proper supervision and by studying technical subjects related to the roofing trade. Once apprentices have learned the practical and technical aspects of the work, they graduate to journeyman status. Roofing apprenticeship programs generally run for three years.


Local unions offer additional job training through journeymen continuing education programs. Instructor training seminars are offered at district council meetings to sharpen instructors’ skills in writing objectives, lesson plans and outlines. The International Union is developing seminars for apprentice instructors covering the principles of teaching methods and the use of lectures, visual aids, discussions, testing, interactive teaching and hands-on projects. The Roofing Industry Partnership for Safety and Health is a program sponsored by labor, management and the government. It promotes safety by offering roofing contractors a package of incentives designed to improve their safety performance..

25 Louisiana avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20001 (202) 624-6885


The Construction Teamster is a truck driver whose job can be quite diversified, depending on the size of the contracting firm for whom he or she is employed. Teamsters skillfully operate a variety of trucks, including flat beds, tandems, ready-mix and dumps. Construction teamsters are an important part of a construction team because they are responsible for delivering the materials to the jobsite.


Properly trained drivers are the key to truck safety. Apprenticeship programs are available in both the United States and Canada. Some of the course that construction truck driver apprentices take include Tractor Trailers, Forklift Safety, CPR, Hazard Materials Awareness, Vehicle Mechanics, Truck Cranes, and Warehouse Operations. In the first year of apprenticeship, participants usually take Basic CDL (Commercial Driver License) training. Apprentices must complete 2,400 hours of onthe-job training to earn journeyworker status

BCTD Apprenticeship and Training

The unions affiliated with the Building and Construction Trades Department provide the highest quality apprentice and journeyworker training anywhere in the world. The apprenticeship and training programs of the building trades unions are administered by local joint apprenticeship and training committees (JATCs), made up of representatives from the local union and from industry employers. These local training trust funds spend over $500,000 million annually on training and operate over 2,000 training centers across North America. More than 180,000 apprentices and tens of thousands of journey-level workers receive quality training each year at these state-of-the-art facilities.


Through apprenticeship programs, new entrants to the industry receive supervised training on the job and related theoretical instruction under the tutelage of master craftworkers who are members of the building trades unions. Apprentices are em-ployed and receive wages while training on-the-job, and the cost of the related instruction is paid for by the sponsoring JATC. This “earn while you learn” feature of apprenticeship makes it afford-able for all.

Minimum qualifications, application and selection procedures, training content, wage progressions and completion requirements are determined by the apprenticeship programs of each affiliated union. All programs encourage women and minorities to apply.

The apprenticeship programs of the building and construction unions operate under standards registered and certified by the Employment & Training Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, or by a state apprenticeship agency.

Journeyworker Training

In the building and construction trades unions, training opportunities do not end upon completion of apprenticeship. All building trades unions and JATCs offer free skill improvement and skill up-grading to ensure their members have access to continuous learning opportunities. These pro-grams are designed to broaden, diversify and up-date the skills of union members.

Safety and Health Training College Credit

An innovation in the apprenticeship programs of the building trades combines apprenticeship with college study. In some programs, apprentices are “dually enrolled” in the apprenticeship program and in a college degree program. These programs recognize the achievement of those who success-fully complete their apprenticeship and offer participating apprentices expanded career options. One such program is through the National Labor College, which offers apprentices an opportunity to receive college credit for their related instruction and on-the-job training, and simultaneously work toward a Bachelor of Technical Studies.

As part of their skills training, building trades members learn safety on the job. Safety and Health courses help members better handle the hazards of construction sites and stay safe. These courses are available to apprentices and journey-level members.


Many of the unions have also worked with area schools to create school-to-work programs. These successful programs have improved industry awareness among students and counselors, and have assisted students in their preparation for a career in the building trades.

24 Apprenticeship & Career Guide

What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a training program the produces highly skilled workers by combining on-the-job training with related classroom instruction. There are currently 37,000 registered apprentice-ship programs in the United States. (In order for an apprenticeship program to be registered with the Department of Labor, it must meet the criteria out-lined under Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 29.5. The Office of Apprenticeship Training, Employer and Labor Services (OATELS) division of the Department of Labor oversees this process.)

Who sponsors and pays for apprenticeship programs?

Apprenticeship programs are operated by both private and public sponsors. Financing for labor management apprenticeship programs is negotiated on a local level, and is guaranteed in the collective bargaining agreement. These funds are then administered by an Apprenticeship Trust Fund Committee, and are then allocated to the Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee (JATC); both are com-prised of labor and management representatives. The Trust Fund Committee ensures that monies are spent properly and that apprenticeship progress will meet the OATELS standards. Apprentices in these labor/management-sponsored programs incur no costs for their training – they earn while they learn.

What is unique about labormanagement sponsored apprenticeship programs?

Apprentices in labor-management sponsored programs are taking part in employee/employer run programs. Both the contractor and the union invest in the apprenticeship program together. The programs are free to would be apprentices. Our apprentices also receive safety training, which often exceeds even OSHA recommendations. Many private employer-run nonunion apprenticeship pro-grams do not mandate safety training for their apprentices. Our apprenticeship programs mandate 144 hours of classroom instruction. Our apprentices are taught in a classroom setting on the basics of the skill.

How many apprentices are trained annually?

In 2000, there were 360,511 registered apprentices. Approximately 55% of these apprentices were enrolled in union building trades apprentice-ship programs. The Associated Builders and Contractors trains only 15,000 apprentices each year, which equals about 4.1 of the total U.S. apprentice population.

What are the qualifications of our apprenticeship instructors?

Instructors generally have many years of experience as journeymen or women in the construction industry. In many joint labor-management run pro-grams, instructors must be certified and/or have at-tended instructor training classes sponsored by the JATC and training trust fund or the International Unions. These programs provide instructors with the very best methods of teaching apprentices as well as providing the necessary information for new technologies in the industry. Apprenticeship instructors also ensure that the mentoring process is employed on the construction job sites so the apprentices safely learn the necessary skills of his or her craft under the supervision of experienced journeypersons.

What about changing technology?

Labor-management apprenticeship programs are constantly offering new courses to past and current apprentices and modify their curricula to keep pace with changing technology. Changes in technology also force our apprenticeship programs to update their training programs on a continual basis.

Operating Engineers

International Union of Operating Engineers Local #66

111 Zeta Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15238-2811



Across America and Canada, the Operating Engineers build, maintain, and service places where we live, work, worship, study and play. Operating Engineers maintain control centers, boiler rooms, and HVAC units for our safety, comfort, and well-being, and their skills are put to the task every day.

Hoisting and Portable Operating Engineers work on high rise buildings, operating construction cranes, as well as in deep excavations with earth moving equipment. They turn lines on paper into skylines and roadways across the USA and Canada. Contractors look to the Operating Engineers and its 400,000 members, for their skills, safety, and proficiency. The Operating Engineer has the respect and control to build the foundations of the world. There is not a better feeling than physically seeing the fruits of your labor, and that’s the feeling you get from being an Operating Engineer.


All through the apprenticeship program, apprentices, as well as journey-persons, have the opportunity to upgrade their skills. New laws requiring certifications, such as: fork lift certification, crane certification, HAZ-MAT certification, refrigerant recovery, and all license requirements are offered through the training departments and Joint Apprenticeship and Training (JATC) programs.

• Fee: $25.00

• Age Requirements: 18 years

• Drug testing: Yes

• Length of program: 4 years & 4,000 hours on-thejob training

• Applications: Call for information

• Requirements: Diploma or GED, High school transcripts and drivers license when application is returned

• Requirements: Resident of 1 of the 36 counties covered by the program. Must have a diploma or GED, drivers license and transportation.

• Testing: Pass a D.O.T. Physical. Selection test. Interview


Each of the trades (stationary or hoisting and portable engineer) uses an apprenticeship system. Hours and course description vary between the two classifications, but both have one common goal: to make the Operating Engineer apprentice the most knowledgeable about his/her craft. The National Joint Apprenticeship Training Committees have seen the need to update and stream-line programs that include training both in the field and practical hands-on training at dedicated training facilities. With new innovations being introduced every day, these programs are constantly retooling to make their apprentices smarter, safer, and more productive, to ready them for today’s contractors. Competitive starting wages and progressive wage increases enhance the Operating Engineer apprenticeship programs and add to the apprenticeship goal of “earn while you learn.”

International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental & Reinforcing Iron Workers


The Iron Workers Apprenticeship Program generally takes three to four years to complete. It consists of on-the-job training and 144 hours of related classroom instruction per year. Apprentices receive training in all segments of the industry, including blueprint reading, welding, flame cutting, plasma arc welding and cutting, rigging, use of hand and power tools, OSHA Construction Safety Regulations, rebar, fabrication, caulking and structural steel, First Aid/CPR, and the use of precise plumbing and leveling instruments. The training is comprised of “hands-on” activities, demonstrations by equipment suppliers, and classroom lectures.


People often confuse iron workers with steel-workers. Ironworkers erect the steel that is milled by a steel worker. Iron workers assemble and erect steel framework and other metal parts in buildings, on bridges, dams and other steel structures. They raise, place and join steel girders and columns to form structural frameworks, including welding of metal decking. When you drive by a building that looks like a skeleton waiting for its skin, that is the work done by Ironworkers. There are many classifications of work as an Ironworkers. For example, you can be a welder, a rodman, a finisher, a sheeter, structural ironworker worker, or a rigger. Ironworkers generally work in all conditions and in all types of weather. They often work at great heights and in confined spaces. Iron workers find this variety appealing and are pleased at the end of the day when they can see the results of their work.


Advanced technology, changing regulations, in-creased productivity demand and diversity are some of the issues our training programs address. Journeyworkers can take advanced courses in areas such as welding, lead hazard, blueprint reading, and O.S.H.A.
