MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Labor is highlighting the start of fall semester plumbing and electrical apprenticeship classes. The department provides a grant to Vermont Technical College for classroom instruction, test preparation and other activities.

Labor Commissioner Annie Noonan calls apprenticeship an excellent opportunity to learn trades that are in high demand. Employers who sponsor students pay competitive salaries while apprentices are in training.

Classes start in early September at sites around the state. They may take place in traditional classrooms if class sizes are large enough, or by interactive technology if not. The classes run through March or early April and involve 144 hours of instruction.
