Apprenticeship Program


Earn Your Journeyman License and Launch a High-demand Career!

The RK Apprenticeship Program is a great opportunity for those seeking a career in the skilled trades. There is a high demand for trade workers, so those with certified skills can earn good money and enjoy a successful career with reliable income and work opportunities.

The first-of-its-kind accredited RK Apprenticeship Program is taught by expert in-house instructors and has helped apprentices become certified by the U.S. Department of Labor. Our program includes hands-on, on-the-job training combined with classroom classes. After four years, our apprentices can earn their Journeyman license—and launch a high-demand career in their craft. Plus, through RK’s partnership with MSU Denver, trade workers who have completed our program and received their license as a journeyman, are eligible for a 30-hour credit block that they can apply toward a bachelor’s degree in construction management. 

Think Skilled Trades Don’t Make Good Money?
