Pre-Apprentice Training & Apprenticeships On the Job

The MSBCTC is building a pathway to the middle class by investing in young people - high school students and recent graduates - who want to learn skills that build a career. We are developing plans to create pre-apprenticeship training where we will lead young workers through a 12-week program that introduces the building trades and teaches worksite safety. Graduates will then transition right into paid apprenticeship positions on job sites where they begin four years of on-the-job training. Upon completion, they can be awarded an Associates Degree in Engineering, Applied Sciences or other relevant degrees. What's the cost to the young worker? It's completely free. In other words, it's the college that pays you! Reach out to us to learn more.
