CEO Staff Members Tour Weld County Trade Unions
CEO staff members, Lexi Dozier and Vanessa Montano, recently participated in a apprenticeship tour hosted by Employment Services of Weld County. The tour included visits to the Pipe-fitters Local Union, The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, and Sheet Metal Workers Local #9.
The training directors from all three apprenticeship programs provided the group with information regarding the qualifications, application requirements, and trade specific wages and benefits. These trade programs provide a combination of classroom instruction and on-the-job training leading towards a career with sustainable wages.

Sheet Metal Workers Local #9 took the group into the workshop to make toolboxes! Pictured below is an apprentice showing Lexi how to use the welding machines, Lexi working on her toolbox, and her finished product. What a great field trip!
