This is NOT a full level journeyman position. The objective of Western's CIT program is to recruit journeyman-level craftsmen with knowledge and experience that is relevant, but less than required at the journeyman level for this occupation in Western.
Where will I be on the pay scale?
Trainees will be compensated at a progressively increasing percentage of the basic wage rate paid to the journeyman, who is engaged in the same trade at the same field location. An employee entering the program with a 2-year requirement receives 90% of journeyman wages for the craft being entered and is eligible for a 2.5% increase every 6 months. If an employee is placed at a step with less than 2 years to complete (minimum of six months), the employee will receive wages commensurate with that step.
