If you have any family members or friends that are interested in a career in construction, please see above flyer which provides information on the HireLAX program. This is a Pre-Apprenticeship program that provides training for skilled craft labor careers such as Electricians, Carpenters, Plumbers and Pipefitters, Painters, HVAC (Heating, Air Conditioning) mechanics, Operating Engineers, etc.
This program DOES NOT lead to direct employment with LAWA, but it can lead to employment with many of the contractors performing work on LAWA construction projects. More than 70% of the graduates from the first three classes have started their construction careers as union apprentices.
A mandatory orientation for interested students was held on Saturday, April 6th at Los Angeles Southwest College. The eight-week program began on Monday, April 22. Registration for this event is over.
Further information is available at these links to a video that has more information on the program and to other information about the HireLAX Program. https://www.lawa.org/en/groups-and-divisions/public-relations/video-gallery/hirelax https://www.lawa.org/en/lawa-employment/lawa-hirelax/hirelax
