POIC Pre-Apprenticeship Training

POIC Pre-Apprenticeship Training

POIC is proud to announce the launch of a new Pre-Apprenticeship Training designed to prepare young adults for careers in construction and the trades. This 12 week program - certified by the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries - exposes trainees to paid hands-on learning, classroom instruction, industry-recognized certifications, and career exploration and planning.

We are currently recruiting the first cohort of trainees, set to begin in early March. If you are between the ages of 18-25, have your HS diploma/ GED (or are actively engaged in a GED program), and are ready to commit to an intensive training, please click on the application link and a member of the WOT team will contact you if you are selected for an interview.
