Construction Apprenticeship Program at Tri-C 

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.

  • American patriot Paul Revere learned the silversmithing craft from his father and as many as 500 of his silver pieces are still known to exist today. Revere also became a coppersmith, and many of his church bells can still be heard in New England cities today. As an entrepreneur, Revere founded America’s copper and brass industries in 1802. His copper-rolling mill in Canton, Mass. is now part of the Revere Copper and Brass Co.
  • In 1718 at the age of 12, Benjamin Franklin began apprenticing for his brother James in the printing trade. The rest is history of course, as Ben went on to become one of America’s most influential Founding Fathers.
  • 90% of the top officials in construction companies – presidents, vice presidents, owners and partners – began their careers as apprentices, according to responses to a survey conducted by the Associated General Contractors of America.
