The United States is currently experiencing a shortage of skilled trade workers, which is great news for apprentices. Companies are paying more than ever for skilled trades people, especially those who have graduated from an apprenticeship program and have earned a license in their chosen trade.

Because of the high demand for trade workers, those with certified skills can earn great pay and benefits and enjoy a successful career at RK. After four years, RK apprentices can test for their journey person’s license and earn a promotion and even higher wages.

Our program fosters our business growth as well as provides our employees with a sustainable wage and a career path to better themselves and their future.
