Maine Builders Association Sponsors Carpenter Apprenticeship Program

May 25, 2017

To combat the labor shortage plaguing the construction industry, the Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Maine is sponsoring a residential carpenter apprenticeship program.

Pro Remodeler reports that enrollees will receive 4,000 hours of paid, on-the-job training and 288 hours of classroom instruction.
