Before you can ask, “when does an apprenticeship in construction officially begin?”, the first step is to complete the application process. These processes and application days depend on your trade. The WRTP|BIG STEP team can help you with this through their apprenticeship readiness services. Your construction apprenticeship is through the state of Wisconsin, and you will sign a contract. When you get to this point, you will be hired by a local contractor and also join your local’s trade union.
