What is an Apprenticeship?

Registered Apprenticeship programs meet the skilled workforce needs of American industry, training millions of qualified individuals for lifelong careers since 1937.

The Oberg Advantage

The Oberg Apprenticeship Training Program is a competency-based program certified by the US Department of Labor and the Veterans Administration and was established in 1953 to guarantee that the company would maintain future generations of highly skilled workers. Oberg currently offers more than a dozen Apprenticeship Programs.

To successfully complete the Apprenticeship Program, each Apprentice must receive a grade of 80% or more on their classroom work and demonstrate they have the required competencies for the job. Once these requirements are met, participants will receive a journey-worker certificate and a cash bonus for completing the program, plus the opportunity to earn at least two NIMS (National Institute of Metalworking Skills) credentials.

Employees are responsible for attending the required classes, satisfying all on–the-job training goals and putting forth every effort to learn the skills needed for their job. In return, Oberg Apprentices will earn competitive starting wages and benefits and have the opportunity to receive pay increases every six months by making satisfactory progress working at their job. They can also make premium pay through overtime (50 hour work week).
