The Alaska Forum is the US Department of Labor registered sponsor of the Environmental Technician Apprenticeship and provides job trainings to create a highly skilled environmental workforce in Alaska. An Apprenticeship is a program intended to equip a new generation of practitioners with on-the-job training and related instruction. The Alaska Forum Environmental Technician Apprenticeship includes 300+ hours of classroom and online instruction and 4000 hours of mentored work experience. The program provides successful applicants the required trainings as we work with them to find appropriate employment.

Applications for the Environmental Technician Apprenticeship Program will be accepted beginning Feb. 1, 2018. The Apprenticeship is a training and workforce development program, not an offer of employment. Applicants meeting minimum requirements will be interviewed and the number selected will be based upon available apprenticeships with program partners. Employers may also apply to have an employee join the program to earn their certifications.

Open Application Period: Feb 1, 2019 – April 27, 2019.
