Earn your Journeyman license for a high-demand career with a world-class company!

The RK Apprenticeship Program is a great opportunity for those seeking a career in the skilled trades. There is a high demand for skilled tradespeople, so those with certified skills can earn industry-leading wages and enjoy a successful career with reliable income.

Our certified in-house instructors are licensed tradespeople. And our program is certified by the Department of Labor Office of Apprenticeship. Our program includes on-the-job training combined with classroom learning and hands-on labs. After four-years, graduate apprentices are qualified to earn their journeyman’s license and continue their high-demand career with RK!

RK is proud to partner with Emily Griffith Technical College the technical college that provides the accreditation for our training, along with earned college credits.

In addition, RK has developed a partnership with MSU Denver to create an educational pathway towards a Bachelor’s degree in Construction Project Management.  Apprentices who complete four years, completed our certified and accredited program and received their license as a journeyman are eligible for between 30 and 45 credit hours that they can apply toward this degree.  RK is now offering Associated in Applied Science (A.A.S.) classes through Community College of Aurora.

Think skilled trades don’t offer advancement?
Think again.

The US is currently experiencing a shortage of skilled trade workers—that is good news for incoming apprentices because companies are valuing and paying more than ever for skilled tradespeople, especially those who have graduated from an accredited apprenticeship program and have earned a license in their trade.
