Apprenticeship programs with Chelan County PUD
Just out of school and job hunting? Feeling stuck in an
industry that doesn’t offer pay and benefits that support
a family? Looking to put your hard-earned experience to work in
a challenging position that leads to a great career?
From time to time, the PUD has apprenticeship opportunities and
invites you to consider one of the eight apprenticeship
programs it offers. Apprenticeships are a door to a challenging
career that offers good pay and benefits and the satisfaction
of working for a public utility owned by the people we serve.
There are no apprentice openings at this time.
How the program works
An apprenticeship is a supervised program for learning highly technical skills through a combination of on-the-job training and classroom education.
Apprentice training standards are approved by the state of Washington and are carefully overseen by our Apprenticeship Committee, which consists of members from the different crafts and management. Those who complete the program are given certificates proving their qualifications as highly skilled journey-level workers in their trade. All our apprentices are required to join the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Union.
If you are at least 18 years old, looking for a challenge and have the right set of skills and abilities, you could be eligible for one of our apprenticeship programs. Apprenticeships, when available, are announced under "Job Opportunities".
We are dedicated to increasing the number of women and minorities in our apprenticeships and, at the same time, providing equal opportunity for all qualified applicants.
