WHAT IS JUMPSTART?

JumpStart is a State-Licensed 26-Week Pre-Apprenticeship Program designed to actively address the skilled labor shortage by training our nation’s next generation electricians, plumbers and technicians. Founded in 2004 by RAMS, JumpStart has since trained thousands of new electricians and plumbers and placed them on some of the most notable jobs throughout the state of Florida.

 JUMPSTARTERS RECEIVE:

  • Paid intensive classroom instruction
  • Training in use of basic electrician’s or plumber’s tools
  • Job site safety training through the RAMS WorkSafe program
  • OSHA-10 trained
  • Merit raises throughout the program
  • Full paid sponsorship in a state-approved apprenticeship program

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?

JumpStart is a lot like a construction boot camp. RAMS provides a structured program taught by former tradesmen that gives dedicated participants a clear path to a rewarding career. Sure, the work is hard, and our teachers push our Jumpers to be the best they can be. But when they graduate, they have all the skills need to begin their path to a successful career.
