Every Day is International Women’s Day


In support of International Women’s Day, we want to encourage more women to explore careers in non-traditional professions and industries.

While studies show an increase in the number of females choosing professions in non-traditional industries such as construction, automotive, manufacturing, and IT, the ratio of women to men remains low. Today, we want to take this opportunity to shed light on training programs that are available now.


Throughout Wisconsin there hundreds of apprenticeship programs in construction, service, and industrial occupations available through area technical colleges. The 2018 Wisconsin Technical College System 2015-2016 Apprenticeship Completion Report found that the average median salary of apprenticeship programs was $71,624 for successful program participants, which could account for why program participation increased about 64% since 2013.
