Save the day for customers who need your services
If you need electrical work, a skilled professional must complete the job. It’s important to the safety of you and your loved ones! Neglecting electrical repairs or employing an under-qualified electrician to do the work can result in home electrical hazards, fires, property damage and even loss of life.
Apollo Home is answering the call. While they’ve been assisting the tri-state area with home services needs since 1910, Apollo Home has cultivated a strong electrical business for installations, maintenance and responsive repairs following severe weather.
Because electricians continue to be in high demand and more “Boomer generation” tradespeople retire each year, Apollo is recruiting for its Apollo Apprenticeship Program. This paid training provides classroom and hands-on training to individuals who want to become a licensed electrician.
Apollo Home, a five-time recipient of the Cincinnati Enquirer’s “Best Workplaces” award, is making a big investment by providing an estimated $20,000 education for free and paying the students a wage while enrolled. Upon successful completion and certification, graduates have a job with Apollo Home and no student debt.
This is the opposite of some other occupations, which require multiple expensive degrees leaving students with often massive debt and no clear employment prospects. Mid-level electricians can typically annual earn as much as or more than some of these occupations with a giant head start in earning potential.
Professions such as HVAC tech, plumbing and electrical will continue to be needed and unable to be sent offshore, providing stability for supporting a family.
Why Apollo Home Is Investing in Electrician Training
“At Apollo, we love what we do,” said Jamie Gerdsen, CEO of Apollo Home. “We help people every day with their needs, whether it’s safety, comfort, air quality or life’s conveniences. We’re always looking for others who fit our core values to grow with us. Having a little work or military experience, some post-high school education is wonderful; we’re happy to train the right people with the technical side. We want people who enjoy solving problems, learning new things and helping others.”
The Apprenticeship program involves several weeks of classroom teaching, hands-on work, ride-alongs with a veteran electrician and off-site specialty training. Travel expenses, such as flight and hotel, for the off-site training, are covered by Apollo Home.
