Students must be currently working in a registered apprenticeship program in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training. A four-year apprenticeship emphasizes the skill set required to be a highly skilled craftsman. Pile Driving is the art of driving down piles with rigs that are large machines that resemble cranes. Work can include driving concrete and metal piling as part of a foundation system, or driving wood and concrete piling to support docks and bridges. Pile Drivers can also be found on offshore oil rigs and as commercial divers in underwater construction. The apprenticeship certificate recognizes student attaining journey level status at the completion of the technical studies. Apprentices may apply technical studies together with general education coursework toward the Associate of Applied Science degree with a concentration in Pile Driving.
