High school seniors now eligible for apprenticeships

In April, the Legislature passed Assembly Bill 375, allowing high school seniors to apply for and be registered in apprenticeship programs. This is a great way for students to have an accelerated entry into an apprenticeship and meet industry workforce needs.

The Local 139 training center allows students with senior status to attend apprenticeship information sessions, in advance of graduation, as long as they meet the following conditions:

• Must be at least age 18

• Must provide high school transcripts that validate the student is on track to graduate with their class

• All other requirements are met (driver’s license, meet physical requirements and have acceptable Accuplacer or ACT scores)

For more information about these sessions, visit www.139training.org
