What are my hours?

This role is a standard 40+ hours a week position. In the summer, it is not unusual to work 10+ hour days at the peak of the construction season. Much of the work is outside, so you will be subject to varying weather conditions.

What will I earn?

In addition to receiving your Registered Apprenticeship Training Certification, apprentices are paid an hourly rate plus time and a half above 40 hours in a week. Apprentices also receive wage increases when competencies are met through the program.

What school will I go to?

Bolton & Menk is partnering with Des Moines Area Community College to assist our Iowa apprentices. The majority of your coursework will be online, but you will have to attend a few in-person labs throughout the course of the apprenticeship program.

What funding opportunities are available for my education?

In Iowa, most apprentices utilize FAFSA and Last Dollar Scholarship to cover education costs.
