The local is doing this in an effort to increase skill level and improve the apprenticeship experience by teaching apprentices how to get the most out of their apprenticeship by asking the right questions and listening to the mentor, while also training our mentors techniques to help the apprentice learn and retain skills, paving the way to a future for our union and to ensure a trained workforce ready to take over as our members retire.
