Registered Apprenticeship Program

The Full Service Chimney Registered Apprenticeship Program allows individuals to gain experience in the chimney service industry. Through the program, apprentices will receive hands-on training in installing, repairing, and maintaining chimney systems. Apprentices will also gain knowledge about the operation and safety of chimney systems and the regulation of their operations.

The program is designed to provide apprentices with the skills and knowledge necessary to become Certified Fireplace and Chimney Technicians.

During the Registered Apprenticeship Program, apprentices will be required to complete On-the-job Training (OJT) and Related Technical Instruction (RTI) to expand their understanding of various topics such as chimney inspection, cleaning, and repair, as well as the installation of new fireplaces and chimney systems.

What is a Registered Apprenticeship Program?

A Registered Apprenticeship Program is an educational and training program that provides hands-on experience and instruction in a specific field or trade. Apprentices are typically employed and paid by the employer while they learn the skills required to become fully qualified workers in their chosen field. The apprentice is provided with on-the-job training and related classroom instruction during the program.

The program is registered with the relevant governing body and must meet specific educational standards. The apprenticeship is designed to provide the apprentice with the skills, knowledge, and abilities required to become a highly qualified worker in their chosen field.

Apprentices typically enter the program with a high school diploma or GED; however, candidates with advanced degrees or previous technical certifications are also invited to participate and often thrive on our team.

Once the apprentice completes their program, they are awarded a certificate, recognized by the state of Kansas, that verifies their skills and achievements. They can use this certificate to gain employment in their chosen field but most choose to remain on the Full Service Chimney team as a Journeyworker and learn to lead their own crew. This is an excellent option for those who are looking to enter a new career or those who want to develop their current skills!
