Benefits of Construction Apprenticeship

The Other “Four-Year Degree”

100% Job Placement      Earn While You Learn

Construction isn’t what is used to be.

Now, the industry uses high-tech equipment and tools that require specialized skills...skills that are only taught in the union apprenticeship programs. The three apprenticeship programs we outline offer state-of-the-art training at the best facilities in the country. Each craft is an “Earn while you Learn” program, which means yes, you get paid to learn! And each provides a unique learning environment with state-of-the-art classroom and simulated workplace environments. Upon completion, these craftsmen are the most knowledgeable, well-trained, safety-conscious and productive workers – qualities employers seek when they hire construction professionals.
