If you’re struggling to hire Electricians for your business, building a customized apprenticeship to meet your workforce needs may be the answer. Apprenticeship programs are a proven solution for Texas employers, providing the tools you need to recruit, train, and retain skilled workers.
Apprenticeship is a combination of on-the-job training and related classroom instruction in which workers learn the practical and theoretical aspects of a highly skilled occupation.
Apprenticeship programs help employers:
- Recruit and develop a highly skilled workforce that helps grow their business
- Improve productivity, profitability, and an employer’s bottom line
- Create flexible training options that ensure workers develop the right skills
- Minimize liability costs through appropriate training of workers
- Receive tax credits and employee tuition benefits in participating states
- Increase retention of workers, during and following the apprenticeship
The employment demand of licensed Electricians in Texas is expected to increase by more than 17% over the next few years, with average annual salaries for this high-demand occupation exceeding $55,000 in the Rural Capital Area.
