ABC Institute offers construction education in the form of apprenticeship programs to train a workforce of skilled and competent construction workers and managers. Whether you’re an employer looking to upskill your current crew members or an individual interested in learning a new trade with no prior knowledge, ABC Institute is the right place to build your future in the construction industry.
What is an
Apprentice is a commonly used word in the world of construction, but what does it mean? An apprentice is someone who is in the process of learning a skilled trade while being employed in the field of study.
It's a combination of two training components:
Practical hands-on training in the field
You don't need any previous experience or education to get started. An apprenticeship allows you to get paid to learn a skilled craft.
College vs. Apprenticeship
Employers value workers who come to work ready to learn.
High school graduates are usually given a few paths to choose from:
Unskilled labor: Go to work immediately without any formal training or education
Go to college: Get a degree before starting a career
Sign up for an apprenticeship: Get paid to learn a skilled craft
Going with the unskilled route may work out for some, but usually, it comes with reduced pay potential. College results in massive student debt and no promise of landing that high-paying job in your field of study. Your third option is a path less often taken but worthy of your consideration.
