Apprenticeship Program
SOWELA has partnered with Bechtel Oil, Gas, and Chemicals to offer an Apprenticeship Program for key construction crafts needed on construction projects in Southwest Louisiana. We are currently taking applications for our Pipefitting class (opens new window) to begin in early 2020. Once the class begins, students will have the opportunity to apply to Bechtel for the apprenticeship. Additional information can be found on Bechtel’s Apprenticeship Program webpage (opens new window).
Stay tuned to this page for future apprenticeship opportunities with SOWELA.
