Laborer Apprentices will perform tasks involving physical labor at construction sites. Laborers may operate hand and power tools of all types: air hammers, earth tampers, cement mixers, small mechanical hoists, surveying and measuring equipment, and a variety of other equipment and instruments. They may clean and prepare sites, dig trenches, set braces to support the sides of excavations, erect scaffolding, and clean up rubble, debris and other waste materials.
Laborer Apprentices will learn tasks related to their craft through on-the-job training (OJT) and classroom training (related supplemental instruction (RSI)). The Laborer Program requires 6,000 OJT hours and 480 RSI hours (160 per year) to complete.
To qualify for CITC’s Construction Craft Laborers Program you must furnish the following documents:
- Proof of age (must be 18 or older)
- Proof of high school graduation or GED
- Official transcript(s) showing courses and grades
- Valid Driver License
After submitting the applications and required documents, you will be scheduled for an interview with the Laborer Apprenticeship Committee. If you pass the interview, you will be placed in an employment eligibility pool. Once you begin working for a participating employer, you become a CITC registered apprentice.
