Each year the Teamster Training Trust has 1st year apprentices who are required to spend about 8 weeks of training in Anchorage to obtain their required certifications to be eligible for their first work dispatch. In the past lodging expenses were offset by Department of Labor grants unfortunately these funds have been reduced; and ERISA requirements do not allow the Training Trust to fund lodging expenses. As a result, many excellent candidates for our programs do not apply because they cannot afford the lodging and expenses associated with staying at a hotel.
If you have the space please consider being a host family for an apprentice or make a donation to the apprenticeship training fund. For more information please contact Cheri, Apprenticeship Coordinator, at 751-9785 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
