“I attended the Pre-Apprenticeship Program in May 2022 with hopes of learning about trades. My counselor, Rhea Burns, suggested the 5-week Pre-Apprenticeship course & I have tremendously benefited from taking the course. During the 5-week period, we refreshed our math skills and spoke about unions and trades which interested us.
I decided to apply to Operating Engineers & IBEW. Fast forward to September of 2022, I got an offer to be a surveyor and am proud to be part of Operating Engineers. Anyone who is serious about their career should consider enrolling in the Pre-Apprenticeship and learn the basics & fundamentals of the trade.” -Arun Nasir Ahmad
