Currently, Balzer & Associates is offering the opportunity for adults and juniors and seniors in high school to participate in a Survey Technician Apprenticeship program.
An apprenticeship program combines on the job training and related instruction to result in learning a skilled trade. An apprenticeship program is supported by the federal government and the apprentice earns money while he is training. The current apprenticeship program offered through Balzer & Associates is sponsored by the Department of Labor and Industry.
The Survey Technician apprenticeship program is a two-year program that requires 4000 hours of on the job training and 144 hours of related instruction a year. If the apprentice joins the program as a junior or senior in high school many of these related instruction hours can be satisfied with high school curriculum.
Interested applicants may contact Human Resources at the Roanoke office at 540-772-9580. The apprenticeship program is available at the Roanoke, Richmond, Shenandoah Valley and New River Valley locations.
