Can anyone give me some insight into how the apprenticeship works with the Atlanta union local 72? It appears they do their training through the Mechanical Trades Institute. Its a 5 year program where you get paid to go to school but you have to be picked by one of their contractors if you want steady work.
I called and asked a few questions and they said they can't promise steady work, saying journeymen were waiting on the bench for jobs. They say they will do everything possible to help you find a job but nothing is guaranteed. I know nothing is guaranteed in life, I just wondered if its the right move. Any comments are appreciated.
