Q What do Apprentices get paid?
A

Apprentice wages are based on the current average Journeyman wage. Each August, a Journeyman wage survey is sent to FEAT Participating Employers. The results of this survey are compiled and the Journeyman wage becomes effective in December. Apprentices are paid a percentage of the Journeyman wage based on the number of OJT hours they have completed:

0000 - 1000 Hours    50%
