As a Heavy Equipment Trainee you will gain a solid understanding of diesel engines, hydraulics and electrical fundamentals, of how they work and begin to create an understanding of logical troubleshooting and the methodology of performing timely and correct repairs. The program will build your technical confidence through a comprehensive program of hands-on and academic orientated training, mentoring by a senior technician, and real-time assessments in the actual shop and work settings. A comprehensive tool set / tool box (worth approximately $7000) will be provided for use during the apprenticeship. Upon successful completion of the program, and two additional years of employment as a technician, the tools and tool box become yours! This is NOT a degreed program but a full time employment position including benefits. Starting pay for the Trainee is $16.50 per hour. Upon completion of the program (between 9 – 12 months), the Trainee will be enrolled in the Yancey Bros Co technician Career Development program where they will receive additional training that can lead to level changes and additional pay increases each year.
