HIRE A CARPENTER APPRENTICE
In response to the shortage of skilled workers in the building trades, the MBIA Remodelers & Custom Builder Council has partnered with MD Department of Labor to create the first nationally recognized Residential Carpenter Apprenticeship Certification in Maryland.
The entry level apprenticeship is available for adults and high school students. The MBIA Residential Carpenter Apprentice program meets all federal and state requirements for formal apprenticeship and prevailing wage work including employer-sponsored classroom instruction and on-the-job training. Upon successful completion, craft workers are recognized at the journey level in their trade and are awarded their apprenticeship certificate.
