"To deliver apprenticeship training that incorporates craftsmanship, responsibility, safety and stewardship into developing the future leaders of America’s construction workforce."
The ABC Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter’s Apprenticeship and Craft Training programs combine on-the-job training with classroom instruction. Students attend school on a flexible schedule and many ABC member employers pay students while they train.
ABC Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter’s Apprenticeship Trust is a state and federally approved apprenticeship program and offers the nationally recognized “Journeyworker” credential in Electrical, Plumbing/Pipefitting, Carpentry, Sheet Metal, and Sprinkler fitting. It is a National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) sponsor.
Students receive on-the-job training while attending classes to learn the latest techniques and practical applications of their craft. The semesters run September to December (first semester) and January to April (second semester). After completing this program, students enter the job market as journey-level workers.
