"Careers in Construction - The Apprenticeship"

"Preparing the Next Generation of Construction Workers"

Apprenticeship is a combination of on-the-job training and related instruction in which workers learn the practical and theoretical aspects of a highly skilled occupation. Apprenticeship programs can be sponsored by individual employers, joint employer and labor groups, and/or employer associations.  Apprenticeships provide the best of both worlds and offer high-quality, work-based training programmes and are a fantastic way to launch yourself into a career when you have finished school. They are also a great route for those already in employment to develop or change their future prospects and career.

Join members of the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. – Northern Ohio Chapter as they share information on apprenticeship training in the construction trades (electrical and plumbing) including their personal experiences as they learned their trade and advanced in their careers.  

The panel members will:

  • Explain what you need to be doing now in preparation for transition to an apprenticeship training program after completing high school, the required classroom and on-the-job training, and various options for you to get the training you need.
  • Share what an employer will expect of you as an apprentice.
  • Discuss how you can advance in your construction career as an apprentice to journeyperson, and the potential to move into management, and even ownership.
  • Answer your specific questions.
