Gibbs team members, Zach Carter, Richard Clements, James Roberson, Heath Russelburg, and Lance Speaks completed Maintenance apprenticeships and were awarded their Journeyman’s license through the state of Kentucky. The four year program requires 144 hours of classroom training and 8,000 hours of on the job training.
Gibbs has 15 current apprentices working on their journeyman’s license in Maintenance and Tool Room. Apprenticeships offer on the job training supplemented with technical classroom instruction. Apprentices work under the supervision of qualified journeyworkers to develop their chosen trade or skill and learn the techniques, materials, and equipment associated with that trade. Classroom instruction that provides training in theoretical and technical aspects of the trade is required. Gibbs partners with Henderson County High School and Henderson Community College to provide training. Across the country, there are more than 1,300 occupations that have apprenticeship programs.
