Apprentice-Style Training Program




ReSOURCE’s Apprentice-style training program serves individuals who are ready to work but need marketable job skills and work credentials for their desired career. Some applicants have been unemployed or under-employed; others are skilled in other trades but are retraining because their jobs have disappeared due to downsizing or relocation, or need new skills after suffering an occupational injury. Because of their integration into ReSOURCE’s daily operations, trainees gain not only technical knowledge, but vital customer service and teamwork experience.
