If you like the challenge of learning a new skill, have good aptitude, and want to earn while you learn, a registered apprentice training program in the construction trades could be for you.  Often termed, “The Other Four Year Degree,” apprentice training is the foundation for the construction trades. 
Join members of the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. – Northern Ohio Chapter as they share information on apprenticeship training in the construction trades including their personal experiences as they learned their trade and advanced in their careers.

The panel members will:
• Explain what you need to be doing now in preparation for transition to an apprenticeship training program after completing high school, the required classroom and on-the-job training, and various options for you to get the training you need.
• Share what an employer will expect of you as an apprentice.
• Discuss how you can advance in your construction career as an apprentice to journeyperson, and the potential to move into management, and even ownership.
• Answer your specific questions.
