Free HireLAX Apprenticeship Readiness Program
June 11 @ 7:00 am - 1:00 pm
The HireLAX Apprenticeship Readiness Program is accepting applications for its latest cohort, which is scheduled to begin in July. The required orientation to be considered for the program is on Saturday, June 11, 2022, 7:00 am – 1:00 pm. This eight-week course introduces its local students to construction concepts and helps them develop skills that make them ready for union apprenticeships.
Why apply for HireLAX?
- HireLAX has the 2nd highest placement rate in the county (steadily moving closer to first) out of approximately 18 pre-apprenticeship programs.
- HireLAX has placed 190 people into union construction jobs, with graduates collectively earning more than $10 million to support their families and our local communities. An additional 6 graduates went to work in non-union construction (including 2 who went straight into management overseeing union craft workers), and 4 were assisted into non-construction jobs.
- HireLAX is a nationally recognized program by multiple trade organizations, including Construction Users RoundTable (CURT) because of the level of support provided to students. As a result of the ongoing success of the graduates, the HireLAX team has been invited to speak in front of numerous audiences around the country (and virtually) to discuss their program model.
