Lowe's has always provided its employees with appropriate tuition reimbursement.  In 2018, Lowe's discovered a way to not only provide educational assistance to it's employees, but a way to make them a business partner for life.  Lowe's rolled out a new program called Track the Trades.  This program partners qualified Contractors with students to give them a hands on learning experience to become apprentices and journeyman.  The courses take from 6 to 10 months to complete.  Courses include HVAC Technician, Appliance Repair Technician, Electrician, Plumber and Carpenter.  When the course is completed the student is able to pursue a career as a contractor with Lowe's for installation services.
