In order to be a competitive candidate for jobs in the construction industry, you may want to consider attending the largest, non-profit, industry led construction school in South Florida, the Associated Builders and Contractors Institute. With the quality instruction and training that you receive at your construction school, you will be ready to work in the rapidly growing field of construction. Read on for a closer look at some important factors to consider when you are choosing a construction school.

Cost/Tuition

Choosing a Construction School When choosing a construction school, you should ask some very important questions about the cost of the program. A great construction school will offer quality instruction, with affordable tuition rates or even free enrollment when sponsored by a contractor. Many for profit schools of less quality will not only over charge but encourage you to obtain student loans, saddling you with debit. At the Associated Builders and Contractors Institute, we can help you with career services to assist you in finding an employer who will sponsor your education at no cost to you. Even if you are unable to find a willing sponsor, our programs are extremely affordable.

Location

Along with asking a school about its tuition, you may also want to consider campus location. Many students, especially apprentices, at a construction school are earning their credentials, while also working. In order to fit your construction school into your weekly schedule, it is important to find a school that is conveniently located in your area. With a nearby campus location, you will be able to make it on time to your classes and exams. The ABC Institute offers numerous locations in Doral/Miami, Hollywood, Coconut Creek and Boynton Beach, as well as on-line classes.

Goals

Before attending a construction school, you may also want to take the time to think about your career goals. At the ABC Institute, we are the industry’s leading provider of education and training, offer apprenticeship and craft training in 9 different trades, as well as the most extensive safety, webinars, management, superintendent and project manager training in the industry.
