Arctic Directory: CH2M Hill receives apprenticeship award

CH2M Hill said April 30 that it received one of six awards presented by Labor Commissioner Click Bishop at the Department of Labor and Workforce Development’s second annual Apprenticeship Conference and Awards Celebration. CH2M Hill was recognized for training a rural workforce based on industry’s current needs.

The company’s electrical apprenticeship training program, held at the decommissioned King Salmon Air Force Base, increased employment opportunities for Alaskans in the Bristol Bay and Aleutian regions. All of the graduates were offered work on a rotational work schedule, which enables them to continue to reside in their communities.

CH2M Hill has also trained and certified 15 Alaskans in King Salmon as scaffold builders. Company leaders say their long-term goal is to develop a transferable workforce to meet the need of the company and its clients.
