Vermont Works for Women

This seven-week pre-apprenticeship is a terrific entry into the field for women who want to get a ‘step up’ on their learning before making the longer-term commitment of a full apprenticeship for the electrical or plumbing fields. In partnership with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), the Plumber and Pipefitters Union (PPU), the Vermont Department of Labor and Vermont Green, VT Works for Women can offer its participants a comprehensive, hands-on introduction to the technical skills of both trades. In addition, participants will receive classes in employability skills and trainings related to these career tracks such as OSHA 10, CPR/First Aid, cover letter and resume work and applied math.
Successful graduates of the program will be eligible for direct entry into the PPU and for a direct interview into the IBEW. Vermont Works for Women assists graduates for up to a year as they seek positions in the field or navigate their new jobs. See link below for additional information and eligibility guidelines.
