Are you interested in the tile trade and live in Portland, Oregon? We are always interested in talking to potential candidates to join our team.
We are pleased to announce that we have joined the Oregon-Columbia Tile Trades JATC, an in-depth apprenticeship program for tile finishers and tile setters. The program is administered by the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC). Coursework includes hands-on learning as well as online courses from National Tile Contractors Association. Each student is employed and sponsored by a participating company and completes 6,000 hours on the job training during the span of the apprenticeship.
The Tile Finishers program is 1 year long and the Tile Setters program lasts 3 years. Courses are held one day a week during the school year, comprising 144 hours of class time a year. Once a month, apprentices will receive live training from different manufacturer reps about industry standard (TCNA) methods, and specific product knowledge.
