EARN while you LEARN!

Did you know that the largest employer in the United States is the construction industry? Millions of employees are secure in their craft professional career path and making a good living because they have hands-on experience and technical knowledge. Skilled craft professionals are in high demand in the construction industry.

Apprenticeship in the construction field is "the best kept secret in America". Offering the best of both worlds, apprenticeship puts you on the payroll while you learn skills you need to earn top wages. Apprenticeship is a formal training program in which an employer and employee agree to participate. The employee (apprentice) learns a craft while earning income through a combination of on-the-job training and classroom instruction. It is a proven way to become a craft professional.


At ABC, we want to help you plan and realize dreams.  Research shows that apprenticeship training gives construction workers a considerable advantage over those trained by informal means.

Advantages include:

  • Qualifies you for a higher level of pay.
  • Exposes you to the latest technology and building codes.
  • Offers you life-long mobility through a nationally recognized certification program of your skills.
  • Employs nationally certified instructors with standardized curriculum including current textbooks, videos, and now CD-ROM.
  • Receive College Credit for your training.
  • You earn a passing grade and most employers pay for your training.
