Alaska Works Student Apprenticeship Success

“Kelain was separating from the Army and searching for gainful employment. He contacted Alaska Works and inquired about construction apprenticeships and Helmets to Hardhats. While he was still on active duty, he was able to take 2 separate trainings and after completing them, he decided he wanted to apply to the Operators Apprenticeship as a Heavy Equipment Service Oiler. Once he was accepted, Alaska Works was able to pay for his tools and gear to set him up for success. ”

“The H2H carpentry class with Brian was a great class. I enjoyed how we talked about the lesson and immediately went into application. It was structured and the instructor was extremely knowledgeable of the trade.“
