Welcome to Nevada Women in Trades

Nevada Women in Trades (NVWIT) is a non-profit corporation registered in the state of Nevada with a mission:

Our Mission: To prepare women in Nevada for successful careers in high skilled blue collar (trade) occupations.

Jobs in the skilled blue-collar trade industry are on the rise.   Many of these jobs demand highly skilled workers, such as plumbers, carpenters, industrial machinery mechanics, pipefitters, welders, electricians, and plant operators.

These skilled trade jobs often require a form of on-the-job training where you work along side of a skilled professional (journeyman) while being paid to learn the trade. Frequently referred to as an “apprenticeship”, these earn and learn opportunities have long been the pathway to a successful career in a highly skilled blue collar trade occupation   

Recently, much has been written about efforts to increase apprenticeships in the United States. There are many career fields that require education, training and/or apprenticeships apprenticeship beyond high school but do not necessarily require a four-year college degree.

Today, women are seeking apprenticeships and jobs in the trades at a rate higher than ever before.

NVWIT has created a pipeline for women seeking a career in the blue collar trades. Its Pipelines Program is paving the way for women to secure apprenticeships, on-the-job training and jobs profession in the trades.  

Pipelines offers a way for women enhance skills and ability to perform on apprenticeship exams. Pipelines is one way of assuring women an equal opportunity to perform well on the trades exams and interviews that have historically been male dominated.  

Currently, NVWIT Comprehensive Preparatory Course (CPC) is the only preparatory program for women who have the desire to enter into a trade apprenticeship and need additional training and preparation opportunities PRIOR TO completing a trade apprenticeship application. The NVWIT Team prepares women who have completed its 150 hour NVWIT CPC with math, science, safety readiness and test taking skills required to pass trade apprenticeship exams and give them a competitive edge in securing a seat in a coveted trade apprenticeship of their choice.
