Cambridge Offers New Apprenticeship Program

May 19, 2022

The Department of Public Works (DPW) and the Office of Workforce Development (OWD) will collaborate to identify residents interested in committing to one to two-year paid apprenticeships. This will benefit Cambridge residents who have faced barriers to employment, while helping Public Works build a pipeline of entry level workers.

Participants will have access to all DPW training opportunities, including Commercial Driver’s License training and hoisting license training, and will also receive on-the-job mentoring from technical experts and OWD’s Cambridge Works staff. The occupations participants will be trained for include Urban Forestry Helper, Vehicle Lube Tech/Inventory Assistant, Construction Helper and Sewer Maintenance Helper, among others.

This new program is an extension of the Cambridge Works Program through the Human Services Department, and is only open to successful graduates of that program. You can learn more about Cambridge Works here.
