Construction Apprenticeship

TRAINING TODAY FOR TOMORROW!

The purpose of the apprenticeship program is to develop a qualified, adaptable, and most important, a safe workforce. A skilled workforce creates profit for both the worker and the contractor. Owners of projects expect contractors to produce a quality project at a competitive price. And contractors must have skilled, safe workers to be competitive. That’s where apprenticeship comes in. 

Apprenticeship combines both classroom training (where the apprentice learns the theory of the trade) along with on-the-job training (where the apprentice gains practical experience).

ABC Florida Gulf Coast Chapter provides State of Florida and U.S. Department of Labor approved apprenticeship programs in the crafts of Electrical, Carpentry, Plumbing, HVAC, Sheet Metal and Fire Sprinkler Fitter.

Classroom Training

Each apprentice attends classroom training where he/she learns the theory of the apprenticeship trade. The use of tools of the trade, safety, job terminology, etc. are included in the classroom training. Apprentices learn the how and why something is done.

ON-THE-JOB TRAINING

Apprentices are employed by Contractor Sponsors who are contractors who have agreed to hire and provide on-the-job experience under the supervision of their journeymen and foremen. Each apprentice has their work experience recorded and filed in the student's records.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYER
