Roadway Technician Apprenticeship
Mission: The mission of this program is to progress currently enployed individuals (working at one of our apprenticeship partners) to build a more qualified workforce of road maintenance employees. Apprentices move through a two-year program focused on the knowledge necessary to perform maintenance and construction duties within the road and rights-of-way. This includes the construction and maintenance of roadways, pedestrian walkways, parking lots, and other such structures. This program combines in-classroom theory and couples it with on-the-job training.
Length: 2 Years
Description: This program includes 4000 hours of on-the-job training (OJT) and 312 hours of related classroom instruction. Apprentices work on-the-job during the regular work week earning OJT hours and attend school one day a week (five hours) during the regular school year for related classroom instruction.
Apprentices will learn how to maintain highways, municipal and rural roads, and other rights-of-way; repair road base materials; perform concrete forming and finishing using various asphalt mixes and equipment; and repair road drainage systems. Apprentices will also learn to use maps and DOT road standard documents; grade stakes; and perform surveys.
A roadway technician’s duties include patching small and large sections of broken or eroded pavement; installing and repairing guard rails; installing and maintaining drainage catch basins and swales; and erosion control. These duties may also include mowing or clearing brush from along roads; plowing snow; or sweeping streets with mechanical sweeping equipment.
