Joliet Central High School students in Holly Camerano and Timothy Grygiel’s classes took a field trip to a Carpenters Local Union 174 Training Center on Nov. 6 to learn about the apprentice program and observe apprentices in action.

The students learned about the four-year apprenticeship application process and the programs, positions and wage levels that follow apprenticeship completion.

Knowledge was gained regarding the skills and specialties obtained by the apprentices while at the facility, such as welding, cabinetry, roofing, scaffolding, and more.

The Joliet Central students were offered this opportunity through the career and technical education courses, which exposes students to in-demand specialized careers such as the auto repair, welding, and carpentry, among others.

After attending this field trip, eight students in attendance expressed increased interest in pursuing a career in carpentry.
