The Construction Apprenticeship Program provides customized curricula for skilled trades in bricklaying, carpentry, cement masonry, construction laborer, electrician, ironworking, operating engineer, and painter and allied trades. The curricula is designed to meet national skills standards and promote professionalism in the trades. This program provides training and education for the construction trades for lifelong learning. Each year the Construction Apprenticeship Program trains more than 3,500 students in the construction trades.
Apprenticeship training often takes 3 - 5 years for completion and many students continue on to earn two-year degrees in applied sciences. Four-year degrees in technology management and construction management are also offered through partnerships with Kent State University and the University of Akron.
Additionally, once students obtain journeyperson status, many go on to own and manage their own companies in the construction industry.
Each apprenticeship program is conducted at the Joint Apprenticeship Training Center of the respective trades, working closely to facilitate recruitment and raise awareness of the construction trades through industry trade fairs.
Students must be currently working in a registered apprenticeship program in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training.
