The New England Laborers’ Training Trust Fund Apprenticeship Program is about training, classroom and hands-on instruction, and forming the roots of a life-long career as a Laborer. Before entering this program, young men and women must meet certain criteria in order to become an apprentice. You must be eighteen years of age, have a high school diploma or equivalent, have transportation to and from work, and be drug free.
LIUNA apprentices, regardless of experience, immediately begin to earn a wage while learning on-the-job and in the classroom. As your skills, knowledge and experience increase, so does your rate of pay, and as a LIUNA member, you are always eligible for career-long learning and skills development at state-of-the-art training centers located across North America.
LIUNA Training’s network is a one-stop shop for workforce development strategies – everything from school-to-work initiatives and career exploration, to community partnerships and targeted programs for youth, minorities, women, immigrants and veterans. The cornerstone to LIUNA’s workforce development is an approved apprenticeship program. Apprenticeship gives a company a chance to invest in its future today by building a lasting workforce.
Within LIUNA's New England Region, the New England Laborers' Training Trust is a jointly managed labor-management training organization that provides construction training for LIUNA members. The Trust operates two live-in, multi-function academies in Hopkinton, Massachusetts and Pomfret Center, Connecticut, as well as a classroom for day and evening courses in Providence, Rhode Island.
