Thank you for your recent website inquiry regarding our Construction Craft Laborer
Apprenticeship Program.

I have attached an informational brochure, which highlights program information, basic
qualifications, as well as the entry process. In addition, the brochure lists the Laborer
Local Unions within our areas that accept apprenticeship applications (during designated
dates and times). Applications are most generally accepted April through October;
however a complete current listing is always available on our website (

After review of this information, should you have any questions, please feel free to contact
the Apprenticeship Department- at (217) 773-9083.

Again, I appreciate your interest in our program,


Ron M. Litherland Michelle M. Payne
