Join ORR's Field Service Technician Apprentice Program

ORR’s Field Service Technician Apprentice Program is a blend of in-house training and hands-on experience to help you get a jumpstart in the fire protection industry.

As an apprentice you’ll be paired with experienced technician to shadow for a six month period. During that time you’ll receive three weeks of in-person training at our corporate office in Louisville, KY and numerous online trainings to build your knowledge base.

After six months you’ll be ready to work independently on small jobs while studying for the first level of your national certification - NICET 1. Once you’ve achieved all performance benchmarks you’ll be eligible for promotion to a Level 1 technician.
