Rural Apprenticeship Outreach

The Rural Apprenticeship Outreach (RAO) program provides rural community members with information on apprenticeship application deadlines, construction training opportunities, and provides educational apprenticeship information.

Apprenticeship Outreach and Education for ALL of Alaska’s people statewide.

The Rural Interest & Experience Registration has been created for two reasons.

  • One, to help AWP and our partners understand what trades community members are interested in for future rural training and employment.
  • Secondly, to collect construction-related experience information for future construction projects and employer calls we receive for workers needed in rural areas. No experience is required to register.
