Trades Career Path
From the buildings we occupy to the roads we drive on, skilled trades workers keep our communities running strong. One of the top factors in overall job satisfaction is the ability to apply your skills regularly. Our electrical apprentices receive on-the-job training and can draw on this experience every day.
Why choose this career path vs. college?
- People in the skilled trades are essential. They have built this country since it’s inception. If skilled tradespeople disappeared tomorrow, society would grind to a halt.
- In 2019, the construction and manufacturing industry grew by an average of 23,000 jobs per month. Workers in this industry are highly intelligent and use math and science in their jobs every day. They have to learn to think outside the box, plan, predict problems, lead and mentor others, negotiate with customers, and industry partners.
Make More Money
A student choosing to go into a 4-year apprenticeship will graduate from the program earning more per hour than most 4-year graduates. These same students will also have earned approximately $156,000 with no student loan debt. Peers who choose to go into a 4-year college program will spend over $83,000. That is almost a $239,000 difference. Apprentices will be in a position to be earning $50,000 to $70,000 post on the job training.
In 1996, Jeremy Price was a 23-year old electrician working out of his garage. The company originated as an industrial company, and by 2001, we employed over 40 electricians. We had also expanded into the commercial and residential fields. Two decades later, we are proud to have more than 180 dedicated employees across four locations throughout Eastern and Central Iowa.
Throughout the years of growth of his company, Jeremy Price has remained focused on the two most essential parts of his business: employees and customers.
Our growth is attributed to our commitment to providing unparalleled customer satisfaction. Throughout the past 25 years of business, our company has completed numerous projects and gained expertise in all areas of electrical construction.
Many changes have occurred since Jeremy founded his business in the mid-’90s. But what hasn’t changed – and what will continue to be at the core of his company’s success – is his investment in it’s most precious commodity: people.
