Learn from the best and become an apprentice at an industry leader

Do you like working with your hands? Do complex machines get your gears turning? Do you value mentorship and professionals that push you forward? If so, you would be the perfect fit for one of our companies’ apprenticeship programs.

Each company’s apprenticeship program is an immersive, hands-on experience, where we bring you deep into our world. Here, you’ll experience every facet of our industry—in the classroom and on the floor—unlike a typical educational path could ever show you.

In our program, every day is different. Week after week, you’ll learn a wide variety of tasks, from countless perspectives, and build an industry understanding that carries into your career.

“I’ve always loved computers, building things and working with my hands, which is why I started my apprenticeship with RTS. I plan to go into design. I’ll be a better tool and die designer because of my die maker experience at RTS. I am learning the building process from start to finish and am also learning to not only troubleshoot but anticipate problems before they develop.”

What is the time commitment?

The program is a four-year program. Apprentices do the program and go to school (higher education or community college) at the same time.

Work and school at the same time?

Yes! And the best part is that we pay for your classes while you take part in our apprenticeship program.

Are the hours flexible?

There are a variety of different schedules and shifts available in order to experience the different types of work at TSG in order to see what suites you best.

Do apprentices get paid?

Yes! And the more time you put in, the more your pay will rise. Some of our young apprentices make more than the average American salary. This is in addition to us paying for your school too.

What tasks are involved?

Our apprentices perform a mixture of classroom leaning and on-the-job training, where you’ll experience the real work we do every day.

What else will I receive?

Our program is registered with the Department of Labor. After completion, you’ll receive a Journeyman’s Card, a specialized certification that’s recognized by the Department of Labor.

Are there opportunities for me to advance within TSG after completing the apprentice program?

There are a number of different career paths available. Example roles include an estimator, project manager, quality control manager, or even company president. All of our various leaders have worked in these types of roles during their career journey after they finished their own apprenticeships.

How do I get started?
