About Us

At ABC Institute, we offer everything you need to upskill your South Florida and Space Coast construction workforce through state-of-the-art education, apprenticeship and training. As the 501(c)3 education and training arm of Associated Builders and Contractors Florida East Coast Chapter (ABC), we represent a national trade association network that includes 21,000 member companies throughout 70 chapters. We have helped our clients build and sustain superior construction teams since 1975, investing over $3.6 million in local construction education, from apprenticeship training to ongoing education classes.

Our Mission

Construction education is our passion. At the core, ABC Institute’s mission is to provide and support the most comprehensive construction education and training at every industry level. We accomplish this by offering apprentice training and programs over a wide range of trades, and providing new, exciting entry-level and outreach education programs. Our commitment to this mission extends to webinars, scholarships, safety education classes, and our presence in construction management student chapters at college campuses and career fairs nationwide.

Our Focus
on Community

The ABC Institute recognizes the direct link between education and a stronger, more capable community. For this reason, we commit to making our wide range of construction classes, apprenticeship training, and ongoing education programs available to our diverse South Florida and Space Coast communities on an affordable, accessible basis – both in person and online. By giving you the tools and knowledge you need for success in the construction industry, we help you build a better tomorrow for yourself, your loved ones, your city, and your state.

But our focus on community does not end with our core services. We also dedicate ourselves to community service through our work with local high schools, Employ Miami-Dade, ACE Mentoring, and the Boys & Girls Club, along with veteran training services for those who have served our country.
