Thank you to the following companies for their support of the 2019 ABC SoCal Craft Championship Competition

25th Annual ABC SoCal Craft Championships Competition

This is our biggest event of the year! Craft trainees and apprentices compete for top honors in their chosen craft. For the competitors, the Craft Championships allow them to demonstrate their superior skills, training and work practices. For the training sponsors, member companies and ABC SoCal, the Craft Championships demonstrates a staunch commitment to the career path the construction industry offers.

The upcoming Annual Craft Championship Competition was held on January 26, 2019. Craft trainees and apprentices competed for 1st place in a residential/industrial electrical and plumbing competition. There was also a Low Voltage and Sheet Metal demonstration and vendors were on site demonstrating and selling their products at huge discounts.
