The NTMA’s 4-year apprenticeship program enrolls new apprentices in the fall of each year. The Pittsburgh Chapter NTMA provides the related Instruction portion for Pennsylvania’s apprenticeship program. Each year, we accept approximately 25 new apprentices into the four-year training program. Apprentices complete 144 hours of classroom training and 2000 hours of hands-on application at his or her job site annually. To earn their journeyman’s papers, apprentices must also be registered with his or her employer’s qualified Pennsylvania apprenticeship program for on-the-job training.
