Apprenticeships

Learn and Earn with Maintenance Apprentice Opportunities

Mennel’s Apprenticeship Program is ideal for high school or community college/tech school graduates who reside in or adjacent to the counties in which Mennel operates.

On-the-job training and job shadowing responsibilities are key benefits of Mennel's accredited program. Apprentices work full time at an assigned Mennel facility gaining real-world, practical experience. 

And the best part … Mennel pays the apprentice’s salary as well as schooling fees; however, the employee is required to pass all coursework with a letter grade of “C” or better. 

Maintenance Apprenticeship: Candidates will spend the first year in core curriculum classes with a focus on electrical and fundamentals of the maintenance department. Year two will include advanced electrical and welding courses.
