From Warehouse to Skilled Trade Apprentice: A Journey of Hands-On Growth

Embarking on a career journey from a warehouse associate to becoming a skilled trade apprentice can be a transformative experience. This transition involves not only a shift in job roles but also a commitment to hands-on training and skill development. At Brothers Plumbing, Heating and Electric we take pride in giving our team members the ability to explore the ability to start in our Denver warehouse and move on to thrive as skilled trade apprentices through hands-on learning.

The Warehouse Foundation:

Many of our current techs in the field began their careers in our warehouse, where they gained valuable experience in part knowledge, teamwork, and a better understanding of the trades. In our warehouse team members build a foundation of what it takes to serve our clients the Brothers way.

Identifying a Suitable Skilled Trade:

Our team members are Brothers who start in the warehouse and are offered an education account to start building for when they are ready to make the transition. They can use the funds in their education account to pay for certifications, courses, and licensing programs within the State of Colorado.

Hands-On Learning in Apprenticeships:

The hands-on learning experience in apprenticeships is a crucial aspect of the journey. Apprentices work directly with skilled professionals, gaining practical insights and refining their skills in a real-world environment. This immersive training method not only accelerates skill development but also provides a deep understanding of the intricacies of the chosen trade and the customer service that comes along with it.
