APPRENTICESHIP

Start Today

Your Journey Begins Here

Many apprentices start their journey by completing the application process before getting hired by an ABC contractor.

Others get hired by an ABC contractor, who then sponsors them into an apprenticeship program. Like you, employers are investing in your future. They will want to know you are committed to this program before sponsoring you. Either way, the application process needs to be completed and you need to be sponsored by an ABC contractor.

Follow These Few Simple Steps

When your employer is ready to start your apprenticeship, they help you get started in the program.

You will be scheduled for a committee meeting, where you will be formally contracted as an apprentice.

CAREERS IN CONSTRUCTION

Your Career
The word "Blueprint"

Most people don’t realize apprenticeship is a career area with lots of opportunities. Getting into employment earlier means there’s lots of potential for you to progress quickly in your career. After putting your skills into practice, you could become a master craftsperson and/or land a leadership role at your company, such as foreman, crew leader, jobsite superintendent or project manager. Some apprentices start their own businesses or go back to school for a two-year construction management degree at a technical college and then apply that to a four-year building construction management degree at a university. How far you want to go is all up to you.
