CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - Iowa Governor Chet Culver kicked off a new apprenticeship program in Cedar Rapids Wednesday morning.

The plan is a  statewide plumbing, heating and cooling contractors apprenticeship program.

Under new legislation, all new plumbers and HVAC technicians must complete a four-year apprenticeship program.

"We need this type of program to make sure we have the skilled workforce ready and able to help us recover and build a better and stronger Iowa,"  said Culver.
