Hawkins Construction Company (hawkins1.com) placed their Registered Apprenticeship Standards with the United States Department of Labor (DOL) into effect on August 17. The Department of Labor Commissioner John Albin, Jared Anderson from City of Omaha, and Governor Pete Ricketts joined Hawkins that day to sign the standards.

Under this custom program, Hawkins’ apprentices will be paid while they learn construction trades in the classroom and in the field. Upon successful completion of the apprenticeship, the participants receive a federal apprentice credential and job placement with Hawkins. Apprentices can receive course credit for prior trade education, as well as prior military service, all while receiving Hawkins employee benefits from day one.
