Students can discover about opportunities to earn money while they are still learning at the Union Apprenticeship and Training Forum on March 13 at the National Orange Show.

The free event, which is open to students, parents, counselors and teachers, will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Damus Room at the National Orange Show, which is located at 689 S. E St. in San Bernardino. Participants should enter the fairgrounds at Gate 7 on Arrowhead Avenue.

Examples of some of the trades participating are electricians, operating engineers, plumbing, pipe-fitting, surveying and roofing. Students will have the opportunity to experience hands-on demonstrations, and apprenticeship coordinators will relate their trades to real world applications. San Bernardino County Superintendent Gary Thomas will welcome students to the event.

Even though the event is free, participants must register for the Apprenticeship Forum prior to March 10. To register online for the event, go to http://oms.sbcss.k12.ca.us.
