Luxemburg-Casco High School Students Learn About Apprenticeship Programs

Four speakers representing area registered-apprenticeship programs visited the technical-education classes at Luxemburg-Casco High School recently to share how students can best enter their career fields, along with how to transition from a youth apprenticeship to a registered apprenticeship.

Registered apprenticeships – administered by the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development – allow individuals to learn an occupation while working alongside skilled workers as a full-time, paid employee.

The speakers were Christina Jungwirth, representing NWTC’s Registered Apprenticeship Program; Matt Jacobs of Local 1146 Carpenters Union; DJ Kloida of Local 400 Pipe Trades Union; and Rick Valenta of Local 139 Operating Engineers Union. 

The presenters discussed pay, benefits, retirement, careers in their fields, education opportunities and leadership development.
