California: A Story of Craftsmanship
The great state of California was literally built by craftsmen and craftswomen with a wide range of skills. A tour of California’s network of intricate freeways, the Golden Gate Bridge or Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum suggests the skill and hard work required to complete structures with historic and artistic importance. Landmarks like these were the training ground for generations of state-registered apprentices. And so it continues today.
If you enjoy working outdoors, like using your hands to create, and want to feel proud of what you’ve accomplished at the end of the day, the trades may be the right fit for you. There’s no better training than apprenticeship. You earn a living, and at the same time discover talents, hone skills and gain an industry education that will benefit you throughout life.
