Construction Employers in South Florida & The Space Coast

ABC Institute can help you and your company. Since ABC Institute is the industry’s leading provider of South Florida education and training, we have a vast national training network of unemployed and entry level training graduates seeking employment. Many of these have graduated from the ABC Institute Ready, Set, Build ® program, are drug tested and have their OSHA 10 card.

We place this talent principally with ABC member contractors and companies committed to advanced training and apprenticeship. If you do not currently provide apprenticeship training for your trade professionals, consider the benefits. For example, according to a study by the Construction Industry Institute, for every $1 invested in training, you receive between $1.30-$3.00 in benefits, including…
