Apprenticeship Training Program

The Apprenticeship Training Program provides opportunities for workers in state-approved apprentice programs to perform work that provides living wages on qualifying Metro Parks Tacoma public works projects.

Participation in the program

Apprenticeship Training Program Policy

Contractors must contract with state-approved apprentices for 15% of a project’s total labor hour goal on qualifying public works contracts totaling $250,000 or more.

  • The Apprenticeship Training Program Utilization Goal is estimated by the Project Manager/Architect/Engineer and Apprenticeship Training Program Coordinator.
  • The goal and information about the program will be included in the bid specifications for the project.

Contractor Requirements

Apprenticeship Training Program Information

  • Contractors must present their Apprenticeship Training Program Utilization Plan for meeting the 15% utilization goal at a pre-construction meeting.
  • Contractors can use subcontractor hours toward meeting the goal.
  • Contractors must provide a Washington State Apprentice Verification Form for every person from whom the contractor will claim credit.
  • Once the project is underway, Contractors will turn in payroll information listing all apprentices working on the project.
  • Contractors who do not meet the goal may be assessed a monetary penalty for each unmet labor hour which will then support and cover operation costs of the Apprenticeship Training Program.
