Become part of a large and growing sector of the construction industry preserving Pennsylvania's treasured historic buildings.

The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) is sponsoring its 9th annual summer apprenticeship program to introduce students and recent graduates of post-secondary trade schools, technical colleges and other training programs and others with building trades experience, to the preservation and traditional building trades needed to preserve Pennsylvania's historic places.

PHMC and several partner organizations and companies will be offering paid apprentice positions for 12 weeks in the summer of 2014 at locations throughout Pennsylvania. The apprenticeships will include a free training program with an introductory one-day seminar in historic preservation and two days of hands-on training by master craftsmen in various preservation and traditional trade skills.

Interested students should review the list of positions and contact the representative for those they are interested in for more information or to schedule an interview. All hiring decisions are the responsibility of the company or institution hosting the individual apprenticeship. The hiring period will end on April 30th 2014.

For general information on the program contact Joe Lauver, Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, by phone at 717-787-6242, FAX at 717-214-2988 or email at jlauver@pa.gov.
