Today on Repairs101 Iím going to talk briefly about how apprenticeships work for everyone involved.
Apprenticeships have existed since cavemen taught each other how to make fire, shelter and tools.
In the old days apprentices were contracted to their master for seven years Ė at the end of which they will have seen and performed the skills of the master enough to become journeymen themselves.
Whether you work for a single master or among a group of journeymen, your boss benefits from having inexpensive help that gradually turns into a highly specialized worker suited for their business.
Apprentices learn by watching journeymen work and through hands-on experience and classroom studies. Soon enough they learn to work independently. In time the apprentice can take over routine operation which frees-up the boss for more important duties.
Assuming you survive, in the end itís all worth it because of the wealth of knowledge and skills you acquire.
One thing youíll learn for sure is that when the going gets tough, the boss is nowhere to be found.
